Prabhudheva: “Even Here In The South Sarojji’s Dances Are  Legendary” 5

Ace-choreographer  filmmaker  actor  Prabhudheva calls  the late Saroj Khan  “a  legend beyond legends.”

“Her dance  numbers wre not just about dancing.  A  whole universe of feelings and moods went into them. I don’t know  if any choreographer   in India  was as  popular  as Sarojji.  She  was equally  popular  in  the  North and South. When  Ek do teen  came out  kids in Chennai were copying Madhuriji’s steps,” says Prabhdheva.

Saroj Khan made Prabhudheva believe  in magic.  “It was just magic when Sarojji worked with Srideviji and Madhuriji. There’s  no explanation to  what happened on screen when Sarojji combined with these two lady superstars.And who but Sarojji could bring together Aishwaryaji and Madhuriji in Dola re(Devdas)?”

Prabhu had the  rare privilege  of being choreographed   by Saroj  Khan early in his  career. “It  was in Sapnay  when Sarojji  first choreographed  my dance  moves. I again got to work with her many  years later when I  directed Rowdy Rathore.She was a  perfectionist. Never compromised  on the steps.”
