Veeru Devgn is credited with Ajay's grand entry into films with 1991's Phool Aur Kaante. In the film, he enters the screen for the first time riding on two bikes. This scene and hit songs made Ajay one of the most promising newcomers in the film. Veeru had also acted in films like Kranti, Saurabh and Singhasan. He had stopped going to film parties, but recently, he was seen at the screening of Ajay's film Total Dhamaal.
