Will Madhuri Dixit Play Lead Role In Saroj Khan Biopic?

New Delhi: Ace choreographer Saroj Khan changed the way Bollywood dances. She was popular for her signature dance moves and was also known as Madhur Dixit’s muse. A biopic on her has been confirmed to remember her contribution to the world of Indian cinema. While the latest reports claim that director Hansal Mehta and producer Bhushan Kumar are teaming up to make a biopic on her life, Madhuri Dixit is rumoured to be in talks to play her, News18 reported

Saroj’s daughter Sukaina Khan was quoted as saying that no name has been finalised as yet. Speaking to Hindustan Times, she shared “They haven’t decided anything. The team has told me that as soon as they will shortlist the actors, they will come and have a word with the family. And it’s going to be a tough task to cast the right actors. I don’t think they have set their mind on one person,” and added that she feels more than one actor should be cast to show different phases of her mom’s life.

She added, “You cannot show one person playing her on screen and showing all that she has gone through. We are talking about a 10-year-old who joined the industry, a 17 year old who started working as an assistant choreographer and a legend who was at the peak of her career at a young age of 35-40. We need at least three people who play three different roles and show mom’s journey. I would like Madhuri ma’am to be part of it, but she can probably show the latter stages of mom’s life. For other two characters, we would need other actors. That’s how I want her biopic to be.”


On a closing note she added that it’s the makers’ call on the casting and that she doesn’t want to get into the same. “I am just happy that they have decided to put out the story of a legend like her, who has done exceptionally well not just as a professional but also as a mother, a daughter and a grandmother.”
