Actor and Kathak dancer Veeru Krishnan passed away on Saturday in Mumbai. He was best known for his work in films like Raja Hindustani, Dulhe Raja and Akele Hum Akele Tum among others.

Responding to the news of Krishnan's death, many Bollywood celebrities offered their condolences on social media.

Priyanka Chopra, who is at the Toronto International Film Festival for the world premiere of her film, The Sky Is Pink, wrote on Twitter, "You taught me to dance when I was two left feet. Your patience and passion for dance was so infectious that each one of us not only learned Kathak, but so much more from you."

Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty, too, took to social media to express grief

Television actor Karanvir Bohra remembered Krishnan as the 'original Kathak teachers' and told Indian Express, "I think he was one of the last of his kind – the original Kathak teachers. We learned like four years of Kathak at a stretch with him. I would never forget. He would teach us not only about Kathak but the way of life and the way to deal with people in this industry."
