Veeru Devgan Biography, Relationship & Career
Veeru Devgan has had a very interesting and inspirational life journey about which very few individuals are aware of. In the year 1957, Veeru and his friends left Amritsar with a dream of gaining fame and success in their lives. Veeru and his peeps sat in a train which went to Mumbai (the city where dreams are known to come true). Being at the prime years of their youth, they thought travelling without a ticket would not be quite an issue. Unfortunately, the entire squad including Veeru were caught by the authorities mid-way to Mumbai. They were told to pay a heavy amount of fine or succumb to a week’s stay in the jail as compensation for their reckless action.
All of them ended up spending their first week outside a house in a prison cell. After they got published, Veeru’s friends tried to look for work in Mumbai, but couldn’t adapt to the life there and hence returned back to Amritsar. However, the driving force and zeal to become something in life, made Veeru look harder for work, regrettably for the first few months he got through life by cleaning cab’s and functioning in a carpenter’s workshop, after making several trips to film studios he realized acting at the films wasn’t his cup of tea and that he needed to do something different, that is when he learnt martial arts which began his trip in Bollywood as a stuntman for the movie Anita. After doing a few movies as a stuntman, his innate talent towards action sequences was observed and appreciated and that was when he started working as an action choreographer.
Veeru Devgan has done about 81 movies as an action choreographer, which includes famous films like LalBadshaah, PremGranth, Dilwale, Jigar, Shahenshah, Mr. India, Boxer, Dostana, KhoonBhariMaang and so much more.
He’s also tried acting from the films Kranti and Sourabh.
