Bollywood's veteran action director Veeru Devgan, father of actor Ajay Devgn, died here on Monday, family sources said. He was 85.

Veeru Devgan breathed his last on Monday afternoon at a hospital in Mumbai due to age-related issues, according to a source.

Apart from directing action sequences, he had directed the 1999 film Hindustan Ki Kasam, starring Ajay and megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

The funeral will be held here at the Vile Parle West Crematorium on Monday evening.

Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Vivek Oberoi, Shahid Kapoor and Varun Dhawan tweeted their heartfelt condolences for the Devgn family. See their messages here:

"RIP Veeru Devganji. A legend of Hindi cinema. Left his mark at a time when 'pure action' without VFX was the order of the day. Heartfelt condolences to Ajay Devgn and Kajol. May his soul rest in peace. Prayers are with the family," Kunal Kohli wrote.

Actor Siddharth also tweeted in the matter.

Director duo Abbas-Mastan also tweeted after the news broke on social media.
