Saroj Khan reveals she was replaced in Thugs of Hindostan by Prabhudeva because of Katrina Kaif


Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan is not one to mince her words. She has always come across as someone who speaks her mind and doesn’t refrain from admonishing big celebrities either. After staying away from showbiz for some time she is now back with a bang as she will be choreographing a mujra featuring Madhuri Dixit in the climax of Abhishek Varman directed Kalank.

In an interview with a leading daily, Saroj revealed that she “had lost interest” in taking up new projects but decided to return seeing “the haalat of dance” right now. She also revealed how she was supposed to choreograph Katrina Kaif in Thugs of Hindostan but was replaced when the actress said she wouldn’t do the song without rehearsals. Talking about it she said, “I can’t judge actresses because I have only seen them in songs choreographed by others. Katrina looks good and there was a chance of collaborating on Thugs of Hindostan. But as the shoot was coming up, she told the makers she wouldn’t do the song without rehearsals and I was summarily replaced with Prabhudheva.”

However, Saroj is not bitter about being replaced as she says that such things happen in the industry. She told the daily, “Such things happen these days. What can one do? I have never gone to anyone’s office asking for work. I can only hope that my work speaks for me. I miss being on the set and would love to choreograph more often.”

Now that she is back with Kalank we hope that the ace choreographer gets more projects and we get to see her showcase her exceptional skills in more films.
