Choreographer Saroj Khan buried in Mumbai, son Raju Khan performed last rites

Ace Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan passes away on July 3 due to cardiac arrest. Her burial took place in Mumbai. Son Raju Khan, who is also a choreographer, performed the last rites. The body of Saroj Khan was taken to the cemetery in Malad in the morning. She died at 1.52 am early on Friday. Family members also reached the cemetery. Saroj Khan started her career as a background dance when she was 3 and got her big break as a choreographer in 1974 with the film Geeta Mera Naam.  Her elegance and expressions when she dances used to bring a smile on every face.

"We buried her at around 7 am. The prayer meeting will be held after three days," her daughter Sukaina confirmed to PTI. On June 20, Saroj Khan complained of breathing problems and was admitted to Guru Nanak Hospital at Bandra in Mumbai. She was also suffering from diabetes and related problems which had left an impact on her kidney. Saroj Khan's coronavirus test came out to be negative.

Saroj Khan is survived by her husband B. Sohanlal, son Hamid Khan and daughters Hina Khan and Sukyna Khan. Many Bollywood celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit, Shilpa Shetty, Akshay Kumar among others paid their last respects to the choreographer through throwback photos and social media posts.

On behalf of Sarojji's family, her daughter Sukaina Khan conveyed her gratitude to each and everyone who expressed their condolences. She has also clarified that given the current COVID-19 crisis, there will be no prayer meeting. A gathering to celebrate Masterji's life will be held at a later date when the pandemic situation is under control.
