Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan on her birthday has been named the brand ambassador for Cine Dancers Association , an association for the dancers and choreographers in Indian cinema industry. Saroj Khan expressing delight on the appointment said, this position is like going back to roots for her.
"I began my career as a group dancer and I still have my CDA card. As the association's Brand Ambassador, I would want it to become the biggest association of the film industry. I was 10 year old when I began dancing in films and now it's time to get back to the roots and provide all the facilities which I didn't get," said saroj and reported "I promise to do good work and guide them in the direction and get the respect the dancers deserve in the film industry."
Talking about the various measures she will implement for the members of the Cine Dancers Association, Saroj added that the association will implement free education for dancers' girl children.
Saroj also wants to organise stage shows to raise funds for the seniors so that the money can be used as pension for those who are living a retired life and need money for survival and will be girls and boys wanting to become dancers. She believes that giving is living and is still teaching dancing to students and newcomers.
She said: "Whoever is able to do both Indian and Western can be a professional dancer and will be welcomed into the association. I will not tolerate any excuses about not knowing a particular dance form. At the same time, if they need help and coaching, we will provide them classes as well."
Chairman of Cine Dancers Association, Nilesh Paradkar said: "This coming together to make CDA a strong and better association. We want to make sure that deserved on-time payments are made to our members as well."
