The year 2020 has taken a lot from us. The irreparable loss of lives of our loved ones and people, who we used to admire and look up to has been the most disastrous to deal with. Legendary choreographer, Saroj Khan is one of those humble souls, who left us mourning after she had succumbed to a cardiac arrest this year. Now, to honour Saroj Khan and the work of her life, Bollywood is all set to make a biopic on her, helmed by Remo D'Souza. Saroj Khan's daughter, Sukaina revealed, who all she wants to see in her late mother's biopic. Scroll down to know more!

For the uninitiated, Saroj Khan had breathed her last at the age of 72 in Mumbai on July 3, 2020. She was admitted to the city's Guru Nanak hospital on June 20, 2020, after complaining of breathing issues. According to reports, she also had severe diabetes. She has left behind her son, Hamid Khan and daughters, Hina Khan and Sukaina Khan.
Talking about her late mother's biopic with ETimes, Sukaina was quoted as saying, "I would be really disappointed if Madhuri didn't do the film. But there's only one person who can get into Sridevi's shoes- her daughter Janhvi. She's so much like her." She then revealed that there will be three to four heroine and that Remo D'Souza is yet to show her the script and take her approval. On the topic, Sukaina said that he would need her approval because she wants every aspect of Saroj Khan's life to be a part of the film.
Talking about the same, Sukaina said, "Why I need to give my nod of consent to the film is also because I want to see my mother's life on celluloid covering every aspect of her. Like is she was on her way, we would get so particular in putting everything at home in the right place. Like if the food wasn't ready on time, she would get angry. And do you know how she looked after her two granddaughters when my elder sister died young at the age of 39? Nobody from their father's side came forward to take care of them."

Earlier, in a conversation with Pinkvilla, Saroj Khan's youngest child, Sukaina Khan had remembered her mother fondly and had said, "My mother was my hero. She was the greatest influence in my life. She was both a mother and father to me. She was very lenient but at the same time, wanted my etiquette to be perfect. She loved me being around her since I'm the youngest. My mum was my fighter. From the age of 13 to 71, she has done everything to fend for us and give us a full life. She has never complained and was the man of the house."
She had also spoken about the beautiful bond she had shared with her mother and had said, "Every woman would agree with me that raising children alone is a very difficult job. And when you have a few other family members depending on you, it becomes all the more difficult. She never had a frown on her face. She was always like, 'Main hoon na. Ho jayega'. She never had a no for any problem and didn't disappoint anyone saying, 'Main Nahi Kar Sakti'. My mother has always backed us up."
