Actress Madhuri Dixit and Actor Anupam Kher, both of whom had worked together with him, also offered condolences to the family.

Filmmakers Abbas and Mustan Burmawalla, actors Siddharth, Nushrat Bharucha also paid tribute to the veteran actor.

Veeru Devgan was last seen in the eye of the public at the screening of Ajay’s film Total Dhamaal this year. He had worked in more than 80 films as a stunt director and even directed his son Ajay in 1999 film Hindustan Ki Kasam starring Ajay Devgn, Amitabh Bachchan, Manisha Koirala and Sushmita Sen. Few films he did was Phool aur Kaante (1991), Jigar (1992), Mr Natwarlal (1979). And many more.

Talking about his father few years ago in media, Ajay aforesaid he was his true Singham. “The Singham in my life can only be my father. Because he is a man who came to Bombay at that point in time with Rs 4 in his pocket, wanting to become something, struggled, washed and lived in taxis so he could live here, did not eat food for eight days at times, worked so hard, became a street fighter from there till Mr Ravi Khanna saw him one day asking him whether he would become a fight director. From there, his growth from nowhere to become India’s topmost action director is remarkable.”
