Bollywood's ace choreographer Saroj Khan is sentimental about Farhan Akhtar's forthcoming and much-hyped Don.
More than a quarter of a century back, her mentor P.L. Raj choreographed Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman in the superhit 'Khaike Paan Banaras Waala' track from Chandra Barot's Don. It happened to be one of Saroj's favourite tracks, which inspired her to take on choreography.
So when producer Ritesh Sidhwani and director Farhan Akhtar approached Saroj to choreograph the same song for their contemporary Don, Saroj was exhilarated and became very emotional about it.
She flew down to Malaysia and had a whale of a time choreographing Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra to the modern 'Khaike', which has been sung expertly by Udit Narayan and Shah Rukh Khan.
The song has been getting rave reviews even before the video is officially on air. According to sources, the video will be unveiled any day on television, so stay tuned!
