Dance masters and esteemed Bollywood choreographers, Saroj Khan and Ganesh Acharya have got into an ugly war of words and things are only getting worse.
To start with, Saroj Khan accused Ganesh Acharya of dividing the Cine Dance Association (CDA) and manipulating dancers. “CDA was established in 1955 and has given dancers like Remo D’Souza and Ahmed Khan to the industry. Even Ganesh and his father were a part of it. Starting a new organisation by boycotting your roots is disloyalty. Ganesh has been badmouthing CDA all over the industry and poaching its dancers by promising more money. They are dividing the dance community Ganesh has his own people take the posts in the new association” Spotboye quoted Khan as saying.
Shocked with her allegations, Ganesh Acharya hit back at her with his statement: “Aap Saroj Ji se hi pucho ki kya chal raha hai. Why is she holding press conference? Why can’t she call me, the dancers facing issues face to face and talk. She should concentrate on solving their problems than holding media meetings.”
He also spilled some shocking revelations and told the portal: “Main unke naakhun ke barabar hun, I have always respected her, though we haven’t worked together ever. Jab maine Sajid Nadiadwala ke liye Baaghi 2 ka Ek Do Teen choreograph kiya tha, woh gussa ho gayin thi. Ahmed Khan had told her ki she would choreograph it initially but ultimately he felt that I would do justice to it. That time, it was me who asked Sajid to pay her Rs 5 Lakhs, as a respect gesture, since she was the original choreographer of the song. Not just this, I have also got her money out from a lot of reality shows. This is how I get paid back.”
Well, it does not stop here! Acharya has now shared a shocking video wherein Saroj Khan herself can be accepting that she was present at the inauguration of the new CDA office, as she was paid for it.
In the video shared by Ganesh Acharya, Khan can be seen talking about attending the inauguration of CDA’s new office, last evening, in exchange for money.
“Inauguration ke liye mujhe bulaya tha aur bola paisa denge. Maine bola pehle maal nikalo. Unhone mujhe maal diya, maine inauguration kiya” the portal quoted Saroj Khan as saying in the video shared with them.
Saroj Khan’s reaction to this video is yet to be recorded. Stay tuned for more updates...
