Veteran dance choreographer Saroj Khan died last week due to a cardiac arrest. Saroj Khan was 71 and well-loved by almost everyone who knows her in the Hindi film industry. Many celebrities including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit paid tribute to the famous dancer and choreographer. Now Sukaina Khan has revealed the names of Bollywood celebrities who kept in touch with her mother as her health deteriorated.
Speaking to ETimes Sukaina said, "She was getting offers to work, but at the same time, because of her age and health she wanted to take a back seat. But still, she was doing a couple of jobs. She had actresses learning with her, including Alizeh Agnihotri, Ananya Panday, Sara Ali Khan, Saiee Manjrekar – all these girls were training under her. So she considered herself very lucky and connected to Bollywood equally. She went into TV very soon. And I think Bollywood started accepting the fact that she liked TV more than Bollywood, whereas Bollywood was in her blood. She couldn’t leave Bollywood at all."
"Everybody was in touch. Madhuri ma’am, Subhash Ji, Jackie Ji, Govinda sir, everybody kept calling her up and called me too. They would ask me about her health and how she was doing. When they heard the news, they were all shell shocked like we were. We didn’t expect something like this coming our way," she added.
Veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor also paid their condolences to Saroj Khan's family after her unfortunate death.
