Revealed: Choreographer Saroj Khan was replaced in ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ because of Katrina Kaif
From training Ganesh Acharya, Remo D’souza, Madhuri Dixit and the A-listers of Bollywood, Saroj Khan has become the first choice of filmmakers to get iconic dance steps for their songs. Veteran Choreographer Saroj Khan reveals that she was replaced in ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ because of Katrina Kaif. Read on to find out the reason.
After a four year long break, Saroj Khan is set to make a comeback with Karan Johar‘s film ‘Kalank’. Reportedly, Saroj Khan is choreographing a mujra song in ‘Kalank’ which features Madhuri Dixit. The ace choreographer, while criticising some of the Bollywood personalities revealed the fact that she was replaced due to Katrina Kaif in ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’.
Saroj Khan was all set to choreograph a song from ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ which featured Katrina Kaif. But she was dropped out of the song last moment and the reason behind that was actress Katrina Kaif. In an interview with a newspaper, Saroj Khan revealed that she can’t judge actresses because she has only seen them in songs which are choreographed by others. She said that there was a chance of collaborating with Kat for ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’.

This step was a bit tough to do beyond a point in rehearsals , I practiced a few times, the team explained me the technique but still it was tough to do repeatedly, so I really wasn’t confident of the step , so on the last day of the song shoot Prabhu sir asked me if I was ok to try doing the shot , and I wanted to finish the song knowing we had done everything he gave me to do , so we kept it for last shot of the song 💃💃
Revealing the reason for her replacement, she said that Katrina Kaif had told the makers that she wouldn’t do a song without doing rehearsals. And replacing her was none other than Prabhudeva.
It was just recently when Saroj Khan revealed that she had lost interest in choreographing Bollywood songs. She said that looking at the bad condition of Bollywood songs, she had to come back.
