Ajay Devgn’s father and noted stunt director of Bollywood Veeru Devgan passes away today. Son Ajay performed the last rites of his father. Family members and friends bade final adieu to Veeru Devgan. He was cremated at Vile Parle West crematorium at 6 pm.

In his long Bollywood career, he worked with many noted actors of Bollywood including Dilip Kumar, Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and many more. Celebrities in large number arrived to pay their last respect.

The 85-year-old action director was not doing well for quite sometime.

Speaking of his father some years back to HT, Ajay had said, “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.”
