Actor Govinda has expressed his grief on the dying of choreographer Saroj Khan. She died on the age of 71 on Friday, after a cardiac arrest.
In an emotional Instagram video, the actor paid tribute to his ‘masterji’. He mentioned that he hopes her soul is at peace. Recalling their first assembly, he mentioned in Hindi, “I came to you, wanting to learn dance. But I didn’t have money. And you told me, lovingly, we’ll worry about that later.”
He added, “It is because of teachers like you that a common man like me, could go from Govind to Govinda. I cannot express myself in words right now.”
Govinda and Saroj’s affiliation goes again a good distance. Sharing an anecdote on the truth present India’s Best Dramebaaz, Govinda had mentioned in 2018, “I was not very good at romantic scenes. In my very first movie Ilzaam, there was a dance sequence where I was supposed to run and get close with my co-star Neelam but I could not do it. I started shivering and started feeling feverish. Our choreographer Saroj Khan noticed it and she asked me if I ever had a girlfriend. I said no. She smiled and said she would teach me how to romance on screen.”
The choreographer’s dying was condoled by a number of trade figures, similar to Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol, Amitabh Bachchan and others. She was laid to relaxation at a Malad cemetery.
