Ajay Devgn remembered his father, action-choreographer and stunt director Veeru Devgan, on the latter’s first death anniversary.
Ajay shared a video on social media, which is a collage of different photographs clicked with his father on various occasions. The actor wrote: “Dear Dad, it’s a year since you left. However, I can feel you beside me—quiet, caring, protective; your presence is forever reassuring.”
Reacting to Ajay’s Instagram post, Abhishek Bachchan and Dia Mirza commented with folded hands emoji.
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty, who has worked closely with the late Veeru Devgan also paid a tribute to him via Instagram. He shared: “Back in time Veeru ji taught us raw and real action, no cables and no computer graphics. We are privileged to have him as our guru! Never executed a single stunt without giving your example to my team and had never imagined I would be blessed enough to present you the lifetime achievement award. It’s been a year since you left us. You will always be missed.”
Veeru Devgan passed away in Mumbai on May 27 last year at the age of 85. He has choreographed action sequences in over 80 Bollywood movies.
