A biopic on the life of legendary choreographer Saroj Khan was announced by Bhushan Kumar on her first death anniversary, July 3, 2021. The biopic will be produced by T Series. After working for nearly four decades, Saroj Khan died on July 3, 2020, due to a heart attack. While details about how the story will unfold haven't been finalised yet, Hindustan Times reports that Madhuri Dixit’s name is being considered to play the role of Saroj Khan.

Saroj Khan worked predominantly in Hindi cinema and had choreographed over 3000 songs. She was the first women choreographer in Bollywood and was known for her graceful and stylish moves.

About her biopic, a source told HT, “Writing is still at a very nascent stage and hence nothing concrete has come out. However, the makers are trying to have a series of actors to play Saroj ji in different phases of her life. For example, one girl will play Saroj ji in

her younger days, while the other one will play her older version. And Madhuri is being considered for one of these roles.”

The source also explained how there is a lot to cover in the biopic. “There are many things to show through the biopic as Khan’s life was full of highs and lows. And that’s why the writers are still deciding which angle to choose to show the story.”

HT further reported, “6 months ago, there were talks about Madhuri Dixit being the central character. She was also approached for the same. And she is an ideal choice because Madhuri ka career define karne me Saroj Khan ka bahut bada haath raha hai. Most of her popular songs - from Dhakk Dhakk to Ek Do Teen - were all hits courtesy Saroj Khan. Even Madhuri always ensured that Saroj Khan choreographs her. Moreover, both of them shared a very close bond and understanding. It was easier for her to communicate with Madhuri.”
