Ajay Devgan’s father passed away!
Ajay Devgn’s dad and one of the most celebrated action and stunt directors in Bollywood, Veeru Devgan breathed his last on Monday afternoon at a hospital in Mumbai due to age-related issues, family sources said. He was 85.
His funeral was held at Vile Parle West Crematorium at 6 pm. Not just messages on social media, many even turned up at Ajay Devgn’s place to stand beside the grieving family.
Veeru worked in more than 80 Bollywood films and did stunt work for major heroes such as Dilip Kumar, Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, and Jeetendra among others.
One of Veeru’s most famous action scenes is son Ajay’s first appearance on the silver screen — balancing on two bikes in his introduction in his 1991 debut film “Phool Aur Kaante”. Veeru also turned director with “Hindustan Ki Kasam” in 1999.
