Nabila wrote about how her grandmom had her own ways of keeping the family intact and staying there for all of them in the time of need. She called her ‘teacher, inspiration’ and her ‘life.’ The young woman also mentioned that even though her dear grandmother won’t be around physically but she’s going to keep her in her heart and mind forever. A part of Nabila’s post on Instagram read, “You knew exactly what would keep us going. You knew how to pick us up when one of us fell, you were the roof to the house we built, the love that bloomed inside it. It’ll always be there, you’ll always be there. In our dreams, our thoughts, prayers and our hearts. We love you Nanna, we’ll never stop missing you, we’re incomplete without you, today all we ask is for you to reach Jannah, meet all our other loved ones there and just bless us with all the patience that we have to muster up. Rest in peace, our Home.” (sic) Also Read - When Saroj Khan Gave 'Shagun Ka Sikka' to Amitabh Bachchan And Loved His Dance in Khaike Paan Banaraswala

You always had something to tell me, something that’ll help me upgrade myself into a better version of Nabila. You never had complaints against whatever mistakes I made, just few words of correction. You were my heart, my backbone, the most important part of my life, my teacher, grandmother, inspiration, basically the only reason I lived. It’s unreal to even think that you’re not physically with us anymore but, spiritually, I promise you, you’ll always be present in our hearts, minds and in this house, a house that felt like home with you around. You knew exactly what would keep us going. You knew how to pick us up when one of us fell, you were the roof to the house we built, the love that bloomed inside it. It’ll always be there, you’ll always be there. In our dreams, our thoughts, prayers and our hearts. We love you Nanna, we’ll never stop missing you, we’re incomplete without you, today all we ask is for you to reach Jannah, meet all our other loved ones there and just bless us with all the patience that we have to muster up. Rest in peace, our Home.

Saroj Khan died of cardiac arrest on Friday at Guru Nanak hospital at around 2:30 am after being admitted there for over 10 days. The choreographer had first complained of breathlessness on June 20 after which the family took her to the hospital. Khan was one of the most loved personalities in Bollywood and had changed the way dance masters were looked at in the industry. She paved the way for female dance directors in Bollywood and was highly respected for her command over her skills and extracting dance from the lyrics of a song.

May her soul rest in peace!
