I became the recipient of this piece .. a huge achievement .. Saroj ji .. you gave us and the industry, the rhythm, the style, the grace of movement and the art of converting the lyrics of a song in a sense in the dance .. .. on a chance I met several years ago, she gave me my best compliments .. she lived in Dubai then in marriage and when DON was released she said “I saw the movie and then I went to the theater where it was released, at the moment when your song ‘khaike paan .. was on, to see it and to come out .. I did it regularly every day .. I said to the usher to let me in just to see the song and leave .. that’s how much I enjoyed your dance moves .. “!! coming from her was the ultimate .. .. an inheritance died ..
