Ace choreographer Saroj Khan says she feels that today’s choreographers were losing their identity.

“Everything looks the same because nobody is trying to be creative or use their minds,” she said.
Meanwhile, Saroj is set to return to the small screen with her dance show “Nachle Ve” on Imagine TV and this time choreographer Terence Lewis will be joining her. The show goes on air Oct 25.
