On May 27, veteran action choreographer Veeru Devgan passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest. Almost the entire Bollywood gathered together to mourn over his death on social media and also attended his funeral and prayer meet.

Now, PM Narendra Modi has penned an emotional note to the late action director’s wife, Veena Devgan. Actor-son Ajay Devgn has shared the letter on social media and wrote, “PM Narendra Modi has penned a heartwarming note to offer his condolences on the demise of Ajay Devgn’s father, Veeru Devgan. The actor shared the letter on social media.”



Here are the excerpts of the letter:

“Smt. Veena Devgan Ji,

I am deeply saddened to learn of the demise of Shri Veeru Devgan who was widely respected for his outstanding work across various domains in the Hindi Film Industry. This is a great loss for the industry.

Shri Devgan worked as a stunt man, action choreographer, director, producer and more. This is the sign of a man who completely dedicated himself to his chosen field and hence, kept discovering new ways of contributing to it.

There is something moving about people like Shri veeru Devgan who took great personal risks just to enthrall audiences in an era of no 'visual effect', knowing well that the glory of taking those risks would not be credited to them. It is said that great things can be achieved if we do not care who gets the credit but concentrate on doing the best we can.

He was known for his personal daredevilry, for pushing the limits as an action choreographer as well as for being meticulous about the safety of his team. No wonder he was universally loved and respected in the film industry.

Shri Devgan lived this ideal and his contributions to the film industry will be remembered forever.

I convey my deepest condolences to Shri Veeru Devgan's family, friends, admirers and the film industry as a whole. May he continue to inspire risk-takers in the world bc,ause it is those who take risks that define the direction our world takes.

Om Shanti to the departed soul.
