Her doctor told CNN that Saroj Khan is a famous Indian choreographer and she is the producer of some of Bollywood’s largest works, aged 71.
Khan has compiled hundreds of musical figures in her 40-year career, and some of India’s biggest stars danced towards her.
Narendra Sharma, one of her doctors, told CNN that she died of a cardiac arrest at Guru Nanak Hospital in Mumbai on Friday. Sharma said that Khan has been suffering from diabetes and is undergoing dialysis. He said she was fighting an infection that eventually led to a cardiac arrest.
Khan was tested on Covid-19 twice, but both tests were negative.
Popular songs include “Dola Re Dola” in the movie “Devdas” and “Yeh Ishq Haye” in the 2007 comedy “Jab We Met (When We Met)”, all produced under the careful arrangement of Khan.
She is also known as a tutor of some of Bollywood’s most famous faces. Khan worked with subsequent performers Sridevi on multiple titles, including “Mr. India”, “Chandni” and “Lamhe”, and arranged Bollywood veteran Madhuri Dixit.
Dixit, one of the stars who paid tribute to Khan on Friday, wrote: “I am shocked by the death of my friend and master Saroj Khan. Always help her play for her Thanks for the work done by the potential of dance. The world has lost a very talented person. I will miss you.”
Actor Akshay Kumar added: “Hearing to hear the amazing news, the legendary choreographer #SarojKhan no longer exists.” “She makes the dance look as easy as anyone can dance, This caused huge losses to the industry. May her soul rest in peace.”
Singer Shreya Ghoshal said: “Every time I know you will arrange my improved song, I will arrange it. “You bring nuance, expression and elegance on the heroine’s screen. The end of the times. “
