Mumbai, Apr 24 (IBNS): Bollywood's popular choreographer Saroj Khan recently triggered a controversy when she justified casting couch by saying that it is "age-old".

She also said that despite casting couch, the film industry provides work to people.

"At least the film industry gives work. It does not rape and abandon people," Khan told media.

She has reportedly apologised for her remark.

Actress Sophie Choudry criticised Saroj Khan for her remark and tweeted: "WTH?!!!! So much respect for Saroj-ji as a choreographer but this is how she uses her position to protect girls?!!! If I didn’t come from a financially sound background I would have returned to London within a month of being in mumbai cos of “industry folk” who think like that!!."

Saroj Khan has worked with several top Bollywood actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Aishwarya Rai, Rani Mukherji and  Raveena Tandon, among others.
