Stars paid tribute to British director Tony Scott, who allegedly committed suicide on Sunday. He was 68.

Shocked by the news, actress Minissha Lamba tweeted: 'Devastated to hear of Tony Scott passing away! what a filmmaker!! he showed us that substance can be stylish too. can't imagine that there won't be another film from him again! truly a tragedy for audiences worldwide! RIP Mr.Scott... so many of my fav scenes that i know verbatim from his films coz i have seen them over n over again..his use of background score... on d surface of it-slick..but essentially his stories were complex relationships between his protagonists that were subtly layered within the framework of his blockbuster endeavors..crimson tide, spy game, top gun, true romance, deja vu being among my fav film of all.'

Karan Johar ‏tweeted: 'RIP TONY SCOTT....your true romance with cinema will live on forever.'

Director Sujoy Ghosh wrote: 'of all Tony Scott films, CRIMSON TIDE remains my favorite.. that dialog is etched on heart .. 'failure is not an option'.
