T-Series managing director Bhushan Kumar announces a biopic on National Award winning choreographer, Saroj Khan on her first death anniversary. The legendary choreographer passed away last year on July 3 due to cardiac arrest at the age of 71.
Talking about Saroj Khan’s biopic, Bhushan said, “Saroj ji not only mesmerized the audiences with actors performing her dance moves, but she also revolutionized the choreography scene in Hindi cinema. Her dance forms told stories which helped every filmmaker. She brought audiences to the theatres who saw their favourite actors dancing to her steps. Saroj ji’s journey that started as early as a 3-year-old was met with a lot of ups and downs and the success and respect she gained from the industry has to be brought to life. I remember visiting film sets with my father and seeing her bring life to the songs with her choreography. Her dedication towards the art was commendable. I am glad Sukaina & Raju agreed to let us make this biopic of her mother.”
Saroj’s children Raju Khan and Sukaina also shared their thought about the biopic, Raju, who is a choreographer himself, said, “My mother loved dancing and we all saw how she dedicated her life towards that. I am glad I followed in her footsteps. My mother was loved and respected by the industry and it is an honour of us, her family, that the world can see her story. I am glad Bhushan ji has decided to make a biopic on the graceful Saroj Khan.”
Adding to this, Sukaina said, “My mother was loved and respected by the entire industry but we have closely seen her struggle and fight to become who she was. We hope with this biopic, Bhushan ji will be able to tell her story, her love for us, her passion for dancing, and her fondness for her actors and respect to the profession with this biopic.”
