In her post, Kajol revealed that the picture was taken during an award ceremony, wherein Mr Devgan was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

So many people mourn the life of the man but that was a life well lived... RIP with love."

Veeru Devgan died due to age-related health issues on May 27. Mr Devgan's actor son Ajay Devgn performed the last rites at Vile Parle in Mumbai on the same day. Mr Devgan was a veteran action director, who choreographed the action sequences in over 80 Bollywood films, especially in the Nineties.

Members of the film fraternity mourned Mr Devgan's death. Rohit Shetty and Anil Kapoor also paid tribute to Veeru Devgan in their own ways on social media.

Veeru Devgan is survived by two sons - Ajay and Anil - and a daughter. Ajay Devgn is married to actress Kajol and together they have a son named Yug (8) and a 16-year-old daughter named Nysa, who currently studies in Singapore.

Veeru Devgan was best-known for directing action sequences in classic films such as Mr Natwarlal, Mr India, Shahenshah and Tridev among others. Mr Devgan also directed and produced Ajay, Manisha Koirala and Amitabh Bachchan in the 1999 film Hindustan Ki Kasam.
