Veteran choreographer; Saroj Khan, has been missing from action for the longest time. Khan; who is responsible for giving Madhuri Dixit some of her most iconic steps, has been the guru to celebrated choreographers of today like Ahmed Khan, Remo D'Souza and Ganesh Acharya.


In a candid chat to Mumbai Mirror; Khan revealed why she is eagerly waiting for the release of Kalank, in which she is seen choreographing Dixit after 4 years ad lot more!


Speaking about her stint in Kalak; Saroj said," Four years after Gulaab Gang, I've choreographed another song for Madhuri (Dixit). All through the film (Kalank) she makes others dance and never dances herself, then, in the climax, when Varun's (Dhawan) Zafar enters the kotha, she breaks into a mujra. Tabahi is a sad, situational song with fast-paced beats. Madhuri and I danced our hearts out and I'm hopeful that after seeing it, people will remember Saroj Khan again."


Further revealing the reason for her absence from Bollywood for such a long time, Khan said," Bollywood songs have hit an all-time low. None of the songs today are memorable and you can't differentiate between heroines, who look and dress the same. I have to ask my kids who the actress is. In the '80s and '90s, maybe even before that, every heroine was distinctive and no one was afraid of close-ups. People are trying to copy western dance, but gymnastics is meant for circus people."


She also revealed how she lost out on Thugs of Hindostan; courtesy, the films lead actress Katrina Kaif. Khan revealed," For a while, I had lost interest but now looking at the haalat of dance, I want to do something good for the industry. I can't judge actresses because I have only seen them in songs choreographed by others. Katrina (Kaif) looks good and there was a chance of collaborating on Thugs of Hindostan. But as the shoot was coming up, she told the makers she wouldn't do the song without rehearsals and I was summarily replaced with Prabhudheva."


Well; we certainly would love to see more of masterji (as Saroj Khan is fondly called) and her choreography with the new gen actresses!
