Leading winners of Filmfare Best Choreographer Award

Leading winners of Filmfare Best Choreographer Award

Although the awards started in 1953, the best choreography category did not start until 1996. Frequent winners include Farah Khan (5) and Saroj Khan (2).

Farah Khan holds the record for winning most number of Filmfare Award for Best Choreographer. She has won it five times for:

Idhar Chala –Koi… Mil Gaya (2003)
Dil Chahta Hai (2001)
Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai – Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (2000)
Chhaiyya Chhaiyya – Dil Se (1998)
Dhol Bajne Laga – Virasat (1997)

Farah Khan became a choreographer quite by chance. She was an assistant director to Mansoor Khan for the movie Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander and just before Mansoor commenced shooting the song Pehla Nasha, for some reason, Saroj Khan could not make it for the shooting and Mansoor immediatley summoned Farah to step in and choreograph the song. I think Pehla Nasha was the only song choreographed by Farah Khan in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander and till date, it remains one of the most beautifully choreographed song. Interestingly, Pehla Nasha became the first song in the history of hindi film industry to be shot in slow motion.

Saroj Khan has won this award two times for:

Dola Re – Devdas (2002)
Nimbooda – Hum dil De Chuke Sanam (1999)

Hi found your post interesting but think you may want to correct your claim on how many Filmfare awards Saroj Khan has won. Your count seems to begin in 1997. Saroj Khan actually won 5 filmfare awards in the late 1980s/early 1990s for her choreography in Tezaab, Chaalbaaz, Sailaab and Beta and Khalnayak.

Also this was not the first song to be shot in slow motion. It was from Mehmood's Lakhon Me Ek (1971).
