Today, on Saroj’s first death anniversary, Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series announced a biopic on the veteran choreographer who changed the face of the industry with her stellar choreography. In a statement, Bhushan said, “Sarojji not only mesmerized the audiences with actors performing her dance moves, but she also revolutionized the choreography scene in Hindi cinema. Her dance forms told stories which helped every filmmaker. She brought audiences to the theatres who saw their favourite actors dancing to her steps. Sarojji’s journey that started as early as a 3-year-old was met with a lot of ups and downs and the success and respect she gained from the industry has to be brought to life. I remember visiting film sets with my father and seeing her bring life to the songs with her choreography. Her dedication towards the art was commendable. I am glad Sukaina & Raju agreed to let us make this biopic of her mother.”
Saroj won three National Awards in a career spanning over four decades and won several Filmfare Awards for her unmatched choreography in films.
