Saroj khan had her best collaboration of times with Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit. Saroj got Bollywood notice when she choreographed Sridevi’s song Hawa Hawai from the movie Mr India. Collaboration with Madhuri and Sridevi was her best work during her career span of 40 years.
She choreographed adorable songs like Ek Do Teen, Dhak Dhak Karne Laga, Tamma Tamma, Dola re Dola and so on.
She is the first recipient of The Filmfare Award for best choreographer and role model for every dancer. She never shied asking about her rights and equality.
