Legendary choreographer Saroj Khan passed away earlier today due to cardiac arrest. Bollywood’s “Mother of Dance” was behind some of the most famous steps that revolutionized dancing. She was the force behind Sridevi, Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit in their most iconic songs till date.
Here are 6 Unforgettable Saroj Khan’s Choreographed Songs:
1. Hawa Hawai from Mr. India
The only thing more iconic that Sridevi’s outfit, were her dance moves. Hawa Hawai immortalized Sridevi as a dancing queen, and Saroj Khan was behind it. The cute swishes and twirls went perfectly with the playful song.
2. Dola Re from Devdas
Dola Re is one of the best choreographed songs in Bollywood. The hook step has been repeated an infinite amount of times and has changed the face of Indian Sangeets.
3. Choli Ke Peeche from Khalnayak
Choli Ke Peeche Kya hai? Saroj Khan’s ultimate choreography! This iconic Madhuri song went viral for its bouncy steps and energizing moves.
4. Barso Re from Guru
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s classical steps mixed with contemporary styles won everyone’s heart. The choreography to Barso Re is as beautiful as A.R. Rahman’s composition.
5. Yeh Ishq Haaye from Jab We Met
Saroj Khan was a versatile queen, and Ye Ishq Haaye proved it. This bubbly number was a sight for sore eyes. Not because it was shot amid scenic white snow-filled mountains, but because it was choreographed perfectly.
6. Tamma Tamma Loge from Thanedaar
The original Tamma Tamma Loge was a Saroj Khan masterpiece. Her original choreography was in many ways adapted to fit the remake. Also the fact that she could make Sanjay Dutt move like that, says a LOT about her skills.
Bonus: Dhak Dhak from Beta
Sensuality and Saroj Khan went together in Dhak Dhak and successfully made everyone’s heart go Dhak Dhak while watching it. Saroj Khan immortalized Madhuri Dixit’s dramatic chest-thrusting and each move was passionate and very suggestive.
This list touches the very tip of the iceberg Saroj Khan manifested. Her mastery is unparalleled to any other, and no other choreographer will ever compare. Saroj Khan’s choreography has echoed through the years and will continue to do so. We are eternally grateful for her artistry and may she rest in the utmost peace.
