Saroj Khan Biopic Announced by Bhushan Kumar on First Death Anniversary. Labelling Saroj Khan as India’s first female choreographer, Bhushan said he will produce the film and has bought the rights from her children Raju Khan, Sukaina Khan and daughters of Hina Khan, Saroj’s daughter who died. Raju is also a choreographer.
“The entire business liked and admired my mother, but we saw her suffer and strive to become who she was up close and personal.
With this biopic, we hope Bhushanji will be able to communicate her narrative, her love for us, her enthusiasm for dance, her liking for her actors, and her respect for the industry “In a press statement, Sukaina, the late choreographer’s daughter, said
“My mother loved dancing, and we all witnessed how dedicated she was to it,” Raju continued.
I’m delighted I went in the same direction as she did. My mother was well-liked and respected in the profession, and it is a privilege for us, her family, to share her story with the world. I am pleased that Bhushanji has opted to do a biopic on Saroj Khan.”
“Sarojji not only enthralled audiences with actors doing her dance techniques, she also transformed the choreography scene in Hindi cinema,” Bhushan Kumar remarked of Saroj Khan. Her dancing forms offered stories that every filmmaker might benefit from. Audiences flocked to the theaters to see their favorite stars perform to her choreography.”
“Sarojji’s path, which began when she was three years old, has been marked by many ups and downs, and the success and respect she has earned in the profession must be documented. I recall going to film sets with my father and watching her choreograph the songs.
Her commitment to the art form was admirable. I’m grateful Sukaina and Raju decided to allow us film her mother’s biopic “He went on to say.
