Ajay Devgn has shared a heartwarming post on the first death anniversary of his late father and renowned stunt director Veeru Devgn. Posting a montage of his and his father’s black-and-white pictures along with an emotional message, Ajay 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.”
Veeru has worked as a stunt director on 80 films such as Lal Baadshah and Ishq. Not only that, he directed the 1999 film Hindustan Ki Kasam, which starred Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay and Manisha Koirala.
Earlier talking about his father, Ajay had once 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."
Ajay is currently in lockdown at his Mumbai home. He had also shared coronavirus anthem Thehar Ja urging people to stay home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
