Ajay Devgn had called off a few interviews during the promotion of his film, De De Pyaar De, in the last 15 days, citing his father’s failing health.

Veeru was last seen in the public eye at the film screening of Ajay’s movie Total Dhamaal. 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.”

May his soul rest in peace.
