Mumbai/IBNS: Mourning the demise of Saroj Khan, senior Bollywood actor Madhuri Dixit Nene has said she was devastated by the passing away of the eminent dance choreographer whose pairing with the screen diva churned out several superhit nunbers contributing to her phenomenal stardom. 

"I'm devastated by the loss of my friend and guru, Saroj Khan. Will always be grateful for her work in helping me reach my full potential in dance. The world has lost an amazingly talented person. I will miss you. My sincere condolences to the family," Madhuri tweeted.

Khan died due to cardiac arrest in Mumbai on Friday. She was 71.

Saroj Khan is survived by her husband, son and two daughters.

She was admitted to Mumbai’s Guru Nanak Hospital last month after she complained of trouble in breathing.

She died due to cardiac arrest at 1:52 am.

An ace choreographer in Bollywood, Saroj Khan directed over 2000 songs in her career.

She is best known in Bollywood for her collaborations with actors Madhuri and Sridevi.

Saroj Khan had been admitted to the hospital on Jun 17 after she complained of breathing difficulties.

She had tested negative for Covid-19.

She started working as a choreographer with Geeta Mera Naam (1974), but it was while working with Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit in the 1980s and 1990s that her career touched new heights.
