T-series had announced a biopic on the legendary choreographer Saroj Khan on her first death anniversary, July 3, 2021. As per the latest report in India Today, Madhuri Dixit has been considered to play Khan’s character in the biopic. However, details about the story have yet to be finalized.
About her biopic, a source told Hindustan Times, “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 (Saroj Khan has immense contribution in shaping Madhuri's career). 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.”
Dixit was last seen in her Netflix streaming release Maja Ma (2022) also starring Gajraj Rao.
