I was taught by Saroj Khan...:When SRK recalled choreographer's advice for him
- Saroj Khan died on July 3, 2020
- She died of a heart attack
- Saroj Khan began her professional career at the age of three
On July 3, 2020, the Bollywood industry lost choreographer Saroj Khan. The Indian dance choreographer died after a heart arrest, and her passing sparked a national outpouring of sadness. Saroj Khan began her professional career at the age of three, and her journey from child star to background dancer to, eventually, one of Bollywood's top choreographers, has been inspirational.
Saroj Khan choreographed a variety of well-known actors and actresses during the course of her career, including Madhuri Dixit, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Aamir Khan, and Karisma Kapoor. She shared her knowledge with her mentees. We are brought back to the moment when Shah Rukh Khan recounted the counsel she provided him on the anniversary of her passing.
The ace choreographer Saroj Khan once told Shah Rukh Khan that you should never say no to work because when you don't get work, you feel very bad. Shah Rukh Khan related this story in an old interview where he was discussing stardom and his line of work.
SRK said, "I have seen people struggle for job, get work, and then be at the top and then not get work. I was taught by Saroj Khan once that 'beta kaam jab mile na toh Kabhi na mat kehna Kyunki jab nahi milta toh buhut dookh hota hai' and someone like Saroj Khan telling you that means a lot. If Saroj Khan is the source of these words of wisdom, they must mean a lot, according to Shahrukh Khan. He also said that Saroj Ji advised him not to use the phrase "Never say Ki arre yaar Kitna kaam hai, karte jaana, koi paisa de toh khushi se Le lena." "Zindagi bhar nahi rahega" Kyunki kaafi chances hai.
