What can be a possibly better way to pay tribute to artists than acknowledging their body of work? A day after Saroj Khan's death, Amul paid tribute to the late choreographer in its quintessential utterly, butterly post. On Saturday, a post was shared on the brand's official Instagram handle, highlighting some of Saroj Khan's finest works. The post featured a caricature of the late choreographer, dressed in a salwar-kurta. "From the A, B, C To the Ek, Do, Teen of dance," read the tagline on the post, referring to the iconic song Ek Do Teen from the 1988 film Tezaab, in which Saroj Khan choreographed Madhuri Dixit.
The caption on the post read, "Amul Topical: Tribute to the Mother of dance/choreography in India." Take a look at Amul's tribute here:
