Some songs remain alive forever for their music and some for their dance moves, Saroj Khan gave us the entire library of the latter.
‘Choli Ke Piche Kya Hai’… Gets our body moving with the lyrics as it plays anytime anywhere. Yes? The song would have probably been melodious and a hit track if would be only an audio, but as Madhuri Dixit danced on it, it gave the song a forever kind of a life. Truly, some songs remain alive forever for their music and some for their dance moves. All our favourite superstar actresses dancing on the screen may get us fall in love with them, but the steps they perform, come after a back-aching and blood wrenching tiring rehearsals which are observed by Bollywood’s ace choreographers. Much we praise the dance moves of the stars, less we acknowledge the excellence of the choreographers. We lost one of such an excellent choreographers, Saroj Khan today, let us have a look at these pictures back from the time.
Her career spanned four decades and she worked with majorly all the superstars and gave them dance lessons. Including Madhuri Dixit, SriDevi and Some songs remain alive forever for their music and some for their dance moves, Saroj Khan gave us the entire library of the latterto Kareena Kapoor Khan she worked with almost everyone. She was widely known as the Mother of choreography in Bollywood. Three time National Award winner, the choreographer gave us songs that are still imprinted in our heads and our hearts. Grace, magic and facial expressions- are three assets she used in dancing which we never will forget.
Madhuri Dixit’s ‘ek do teen’ , Sridevi’s ‘Hawa Hawai’ and Aishwarya Rai’s ‘Nimbooda’ are our personal favourite of her work she left us with. Apart from this, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s ‘Ye Ishq Hai’, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Ghani Bawri Ho Gayi’, Alia Bhatt’s ‘ Ghar More Pardesiya’, Kajol and Shah Rukh’s ‘ruk ja o dil deewane‘, Shilpa Shetty’s ‘chura ke dil mera’, Urmila Mantodkar’s ‘tanha tanha yaha pe jeena’ and Manisha Koirala’s ‘badi mushkil baba badi mushkil‘ , Karisma Kapoor’s ‘Pucho Zara Pucho‘ are some of the bests we remember with all the superstars of our industry.
As Kareena Kapoor Khan rightly points down her learnings from Saroj Khan, “Pair nahi chala sakte, toh kam se kam Face chalao” . That’s so exactly like her! That’s what she explained almost everyone, to dance through face, to smile through eyes and to hypnotise with expressions!
