In yet another blow to Bollywood, ace choreographer, Saroj Khan, 71 has passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest. The three-time National Award winner, who choreographed some of the most memorable songs in Hindi cinema, has not been keeping well for some time.

She was admitted to the Guru Nanak Hospital in Bandra, north west Mumbai, last Saturday after she complained of breathing issues. The mandatory COVID-19 test done at the hospital showed a negative result.

As soon as the news of her death broke , Bollywood mourned her demise. Superstar Akshay Kumar said Khan made dance look easy and accessible. ‘Woke up to the sad news that legendary choreographer #SarojKhanji is no more. She made dance look easy, almost like anybody can dance, a huge loss for the industry. May her soul rest in peace,’ Akshay tweeted.

Superstar Madhuri Dixit, in a heart felt tweet wrote , I’m devastated by the loss of my friend and guru, Saroj Khan. Will always be grateful for her work in helping me reach my full potential in dance.
