Many celebs who have worked with her have expressed their grief including Madhuri Dixit. Dixit, who is an acclaimed dancer herself, paid her respects to her teacher and friend on social media.

"I'm devastated by the loss of my friend and guru, Saroj Khan. Will always be grateful for her work in helping me reach my full potential in dance. The world has lost an amazingly talented person. I will miss you. My sincere condolences to the family," she Tweeted.

Saroj's talend was recognized beyond borders as well. Producer and actor Samina Peerzada also took to social media to honor Khan. 

"A great loss please accept my heartfelt condolences. You were blessed to have her as your Guru. May her wonderful soul rest in eternal peace," Samina said, replying to Madhuri's post.

She last choreographed Madhuri Dixit in the song 'Tabaah Ho Gaye' from Karan Johar’s production Kalank(2019).
