Madhuri gave a tribute to Saroj Khan during her IIFA 2019 performance, who has choreographed Madhuri for some of her most loved songs like Tamma Tamma, Channe K Khet Mein, Dhak Dhak Karne Laga, and Maar Dala among many more.
Born as Nirmala Nagpal in Mumbai to a couple migrated to India after partition, Saroj Khan started as a child actor in the industry. She learned dancing on the sets from noted choreographer and Kathak guru B Sohanlal.
Meanwhile, Madhuri Dixit was last seen in Karan Johar’s magnum opus Kalank. Though the film boast of an impressive ensemble of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, and Aditya Roy Kapur, the film failed to impress the masses and was also a box office dud!
