Ajay Devgan‘s father, Veeru Devgan was a celebrated stunt and action choreographer in Bollywood, having directed action scenes in more than 80 Hindi films. Unfortunately, Mr. Devgan died earlier this morning. The cause of his death is unknown at the moment. His funeral will be held today at 6 PM.
The late stunt director also dabbled in filmmaking with Hindustan Ki Kasam which had Ajay in the lead. In Phool Aur Kaante, Ajay’s entry on two bikes directed by his father, was a memorable one and made him one of the most promising newcomers of his time. Apart from direction and action choreography, Veeru Devgan had also acted in films such as Kranti, Saurabh and Singhasan.
We wish the family lots of strength to cope with the loss. RIP, Veeru ji.
