Saroj Khan died of cardiac arrest in Mumbai. 

Bollywood has lost a few gems ever since the novel coronavirus has loomed large on the world. After Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Susant Singh Rajput and a few others, ace Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan died due to cardiac arrest in Mumbai today.

Noted for her work in films as she struck a bond with almost all the leading ladies of Bollywood and having choreographed them at some point in time, Saroj Khan aka ‘Masterji’ as people would fondly call her is no more at the age of 72. But she has left behind a legacy that few can boast of!

Here are some of her most iconic songs that remain relevant today and will continue in times to come:

Dhak Dhak

Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit came to be known as the Dhak Dhak girl after this song with Anil Kapoor from their film ‘Beta’. The song is sensual, edgy, romantic and is one of the finest from Saroj Khan.
