The industry lost a legend today with Saroj Khan‘s passing. The 71-year-old veteran choreographer has waved her magic wand with her iconic dance moves in over 2000 songs. In her 4 decade long career, she has trained and taught so many actors and actresses and groomed them into the graceful and effortless dancers that we know today. Be it Madhuri Dixit Nene, Kareena Kapoor Khan or the younger Varun Dhawan and Ananya Panday. The industry is mourning the end of an era today, and they all took to their social media to pay their condolences and celebrate her legacy.
One of Saroj Ji‘s all time favourites, Madhuri said that she was ‘devastated and at an utter loss of words’ at the death of her friend and Guruji. She shared some lovely pictures with Saroj Ji that show how they both were so fond of each other.

Kareena shared a picture from the sets of Jab We Met, and says that Saroj Ji taught her how to express through her face while dancing. Bebo says that she learnt how to smile through her eyes from Saroj Ji.
