Saroj Khan was 71-years-old and was soon to turn 72 in November. She complained of breathing issues and was admitted to Guru Nanak Hospital in Bandra last Saturday. Saroj Khan’s family shared a note on her Instagram account that they are not organising a prayer meet for her due to the COVID-19 situation in the country. The note reads as “Thank you for all your messages and for keeping Mummy in your prayers. Given the current COVID-19 situation, there will be no prayer meet. Whenever the situation improves, we will meet and celebrate the life of Saroj Khan. 🙏” (sic).
