Saroj Khan always used to speak about how dance today has lost nazakat and adaa (delicateness and grace). She also spoke about what she thinks of item numbers like "Shiela ki Jawaani", "Munni Badnam Hui" and "Chikni Chameli". Talking to Rediff, she shared, "Sheila Ki Jawani is better than "Munni Badnam Hui". The songs weren't that good but the dance was better. That was the saving grace. "Sheila Ki Jawani" is better than the other item numbers."
Saroj Khan further added, "I thought Chikini Chameli was vulgar because he (Ganesh Acharya) emphasised too much on one hip movement and her bust. The song is not done like a lavni. He went for out-and-out vulgarity." Saroj Khan Reveals That Madhuri Dixit Refused To Leave Her Rehearsals For 7 Days During Tezaab.
