Remo about Saroj Khan and the said project
Remo revealed that there were talks about the project spotlighting Masterji’s life. He said, “The last conversation took place before the lockdown. Sarojji came to my office to talk about it. While shooting the song titled Tabah Ho Gaye with actress Madhuri Dixit Nene, when we would be together for hours every day, I told Sarojji that her life is inspiring and that a woman-oriented film can be made on her journey. On hearing this, she readily agreed and had said, “Bilkul, bol kab banayega. Jaldi bana de”
Cautioning audiences to not get their hopes up too high, he added,” Till now I have not said anything officially on this, but this is my dream project.”
