One may recall that Madhuri Dixit was a student of the late ‘Masterji’ Saroj Khan for 33 years and they have collaborated on a plethora of iconic songs. However, the actress has been unable to attend the choreographer’s prayer meet as she is busy at home taking care of her 87-year-old mother, who hasn’t been in the pink of her health. Sources say that owing to this, Madhuri has requested Saroj Khan’s daughter Sukaina to try and keep the prayer meet for later as she is very keen to attend. “
Madhuri wants to be at the prayer meet as Saroj ji is also like a mother to her in the film industry, who has held her hand for years and is responsible for making her the graceful diva that she is. Hence, she requested Sukaina if the prayer meeting could be kept at a more suitable time. Other filmmakers, actors and actresses too want to be there for the meet. Yet another point is also that there are hundreds of dancers who are indebted to Saroj Khan for her help and guidance over the years. Hence Saroj ji’s family is thinking of keeping the prayer meet, perhaps after a month or two, when the Covid situation also improves, as the current situation does not allow many people to be present for the meet,” says a source.
