Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has reportedly promised to help the out-of-work choreographer, Saroj Khan, after she shared her ordeal with him during a meeting recently. Saroj Khan, who fell out with Salman during the shooting of Andaz Apna Apna, met Salman on Thursday last week.
“When we met, Salman asked me what I was doing nowadays. So I told him honestly that I don’t have any work [film offers], and that I am teaching Indian classical dance to young actresses. Upon hearing that, he said, ‘Now, you will work with me’. I know he is a man of his word, so he will keep his promise,” Mid-day quoted Saroj as saying.
There are speculations that Salman may hire her for at least one song in Dabangg 3. In 1994, Salman had reportedly accused Saroj of favouring Aamir Khan. The two later buried their differences.
Saroj Khan said that she had approached Salman’s NGO Being Human request them for an appointment with the star since her grandson, Aryan, wanted to meet him. “So, I had approached Sandhya [Ramachandran], who is part of his NGO Being Human. Next thing you know, Salman invited us over to his residence. He was so warm to Aryan and clicked many pictures with him. Salman also told him that when he gets better, he can join him on his film set,” reported Mid-day.
An unverified Instagram account of Saroj Khan later posted a photo of the famous choreographer with Salman. The caption of the photo read, “It was a pleasure meeting you after so long @beingsalmankhan ! God bless you always my darling! ”
Salman is known to help artists from the entertainment industry and those who worked with him in the past. Last year, he had earned plaudits for helping late Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma’s Kavi Kumar Azad with payment of surgery costs. The actor had later died.
