The letter reads, “I am deeply saddened to learn of the demise of Veeru Devgan who was widely respected for his outstanding work across various domains of the Hindi film industry. This is a great loss for the industry.”
In the letter PM Modi has also written that how Veeru Devgan risked his life when there were no visual effects in the industry; “There is something moving about people like Shri Veeru Devgan who took great personal risks just to enthrall audiences in an era of no ‘visual effect’, knowing well that the glory of taking those risks would not be credited to them. It is said that great things can be achieved if we do not care who gets the credit but concentrate on doing the best we can.”
