Veeru was last seen in the public eye at the screening of Ajay’s film Total Dhamaal earlier this year. He had worked in more than 80 films as a stunt director and even directed son Ajay in 1999 film Hindustan Ki Kasam.

Talking about his father a few years ago, Ajay had said he was his true Singham. “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.”
