Veeru Devgan has also acted in films like ‘Kranti’, ‘Saurabh’ and ‘Singhasan’. He has choreographed fight and action sequences in more than 80 films. Apparently, the veteran stunt director wasn’t keeping well off late. However, the exact cause of his death is yet to be known.
Expressing his grief over Veeru Devgan’s death, Vicky Kaushal’s father Sham Kaushal (who is also a stunt director) wrote on Twitter, “RIP Veeru Devgan ji. Just came to know about this sad news. As an Action Director always ahead of his time and as human being par excellence. I became a stuntman with his blessings on 8th August, 1980 as he signed my application to become a stuntman and made me part of his team.”
We offer our heartfelt condolences to the Devgn family.
