We know Saroj Khan as the 'Dance Master' who has made all the top Bollywood actors dance to her tunes. However, the Dance Guru will soon be seen in a new avatar, as she is all set to turn a Producer.
Elaborating further, our source tells us, "Talks are on between Sahara One and Saroj ji for a fiction show. The show has been approved and even the casting process is on. We will surely see Saroj Khan debuting as Producer on the small screen".
Our source further adds, "The show on Sahara One is based on a social issue and will have a backdrop of UP. However, things are in the initial stages. Even the name for the production house has not been decided yet".
However, two big names have almost been finalized for the show.
"Veteran actor Kiran Kumar and Rati Agnihotri who has many a films to her credit have been approached to play pivotal roles in the show. They will in all probability be part of the show", informs our source.
When we called Saroj Khan to know whether she is turning a Producer, she initially denied the news. On probing further, she said "Yes, talks are on with a channel for a show. But nothing is confirmed. I have not yet decided on the name for my production house; we have two to three options for the name".
When contacted, Kiran Kumar told us, "Yes, I have got an offer for Saroj Khan's show. Though I will love to accept it, nothing has been decided".
We tried calling Rati Agnihotri, but she remained unavailable.
We sent a text message to Mushtaq Shiekh, Creative Director, Sahara One, but did not get any revert.
