Madhuri Dixit, who is currently on the sets of her reality show, expressed her grief on Veeru Devgan's demise. She said, “Many condolences to Ajay's family and Kajol. He was a nice man. Main unke saath bahut kaam kar chuki hoon, bahut bahut ache insaan the. He was a very good fight master aur unke saath kaam karke bahut maza aata tha. Jab pata chalta tha ki Veeru Ji action karne wale hai toh yeh pata rehta tha ki sab theek hoga. Tasalli milti thi ki safety ka khayal rakha jayega aur especially heroines ka khayal rakhte the ki unke zyada kuch karna na pade. Bahut ache insaan the.
