The viral video has Saroj saying, “We were shooting in Mauritius for the title track “Baazigar O Baazigar”. He (SRK) goes in front on the lyrics “zameen aasmaan” with his back towards the camera and then he opens his arms, pulls his shirt at the chest and shows her name (Kajol’s name Priya in the film). It was me who first gave him this (stretched arms) action during that particular song. That step is still so popular.”

Saroj Khan’s funeral was held Friday morning in Mumbai.
