If Madhuri Dixit has agreed to dance to Saroj Khan’s tune after 18 years – the last film they collaborated on was Sanjay Bhansali’s Devdas – it is only because of Karan Johar.
The enterprising movie Moghul sat the two ladies down and made them iron out their differences. Nobody knows what it was exactly that triggered off this prolonged Cold War between the danseuse-actress and the legendary choreographer. The two had teamed for such popular numbers as Ek do teen in Tezaab and Choli ke peeche kya hai in Khalnaayak.
The last time that they worked together was for the Mujra Maar Dala in Devdas. Thereafter some uncharitable remarks of the temperamental choreographer put Dixit off… until now when Karan Johar decided to sort out their differences.
Interestingly while Saroj Khan has been brought in to choreograph Madhuri in a Mujra for the film Kalank it is Remo d’Souza who has been given charge of the overall supervision of the number.

“Basically Karan Johar wants to make sure there is no friction on her set With Sarojji around anything can happen,” says a member of the Kalank team.
