Veteran Choreographer took her last breath on Friday morning leaving all of us in dismal. With a career span of over 40 years and choreographing most of the iconic songs, khan was known as the ‘Mother of dance in India’
Although its hard to choose the best iconic numbers khan gave life to, but Cult Media Digital brings you top 5 songs that from kids to oldies enjoyed and are choreographed by Saroj Khan
1. Dola Re Dola Re
An iconic dance number from the, 2002 romantic drama – Devdas, the song was choreographed by Saroj Khan and performed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit Nene, two of the leading actresses of the era. Choreographing for two leading ladies of the film, Khan had a hard time choosing steps, as she had to balance in giving equally good steps to both the divas so that none of them would feel left out. According to Saroj Khan, Dola Re Dola was one of the toughest she had to endure as Madhuri and Aishwarya are brilliant dancers. Khan bagged her 8th Filmfare Best Choreography Award of this evergreen dance number. This song is surely an iconic number and we are grateful that khan gave it her own touch!
2. Dhak Dhak Karne Laga
One of the most popular song of the 90’s from the film Beta (1992), Dhak Dhak Karne Laga was one of the songs khan gave her creativity too! The iconic song starring Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor took three long days to shoot only the first 5 minutes the rest of the song was shot overnight. Khan was exasperated as Madhuri had no dates and the song was shot in such a hurry but we are oh so thankful that Saroj Ji took the challenge and gave this evergreen number and millions of memories to cherish on.
3. Nimbooda Nimooda
Another song that is performed in dance competitions, face offs, weddings and Bollywood nights is the iconic number Nimbooda Nimbooda from the 1999 romantic drama film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. The choreography of this song is the one of the most beautiful choreographies and Aishwariya surely did justice to it. Saroj Khan was applauded for this amazing piece of art and was awarded as the Best Choreographer at the 45th Filmfare Award.
4. Hawa Hawaii
Next up on the list is a classic from a 1987 superhero film – Mr. India. The song Hawa Hawaii, which is popular even today, was performed by the late Sridevi Ji and was given steps by Saroj Khan. The way the late actress performed, the energy, the steps are to date unmatchable. We surely are going to miss Khan and her choreographies!
5. Tabaah Ho Gaye
The last one on the list is from 2019 multi starrer period drama Kalank. The song Tabaah Ho Gaye marked the last collaboration of Madhuri Dixit and Saroj Khan. The song that many dancers love performing on today, was choreographed by Saroj Khan. If reports are to be believed, the actor herself personally recommend Khan for this popular number.
These are just the 5 of the infinite songs Saroj Ji gave life to and we are thankful for the great dance moves and finest choreographies Bollywood can ever have! May you rest in peace!
