On the chat show, Yarron Ki Barat, Ajay Devgn and director, Sajid Khan had recalled how his father, Veeru Devgan had once saved them from getting beaten up by a mob of around a thousand people. Sajid had narrated the whole incident. In his words, "Ajay had one white jeep in which we used to roam around. One day when Ajay was driving through a narrow lane near Holiday Hotel, a kid, who was running after a kite, came in front of the jeep. Ajay pulled the brakes immediately, the jeep didn't hit the kid but he started crying as he got scared. Some 1000 people gathered around our jeep after that. We tried explaining to them that it was not Ajay's fault and the kid is also all fine. But the people started saying, 'Get out, get out, you rich people drive very fast.' Fir samajh nahi aaya public sab tap tap tapli padne lage. In 10 minutes, the news reached Ajay's dad Veeru Devgan and he bought 150-250 fighters. It was a like Hindi film scene."

In an old interview, Ajay Devgn had proudly stated that his father will always be the 'Singham' of his life. He had said, "The Singham in my life can only be my father. Because he is a man who came to Bombay at that point in time with nothing in his pocket, wanting to become something, struggled, washed and lived in taxis so he could live here, did not eat food for eight days at times, worked so hard, became a street fighter from there till Mr Ravi Khanna saw him one day asking him whether he would become a fight director. From there, his growth from nowhere to become India’s topmost action director is remarkable."
