Bollywood industry lost another brilliant artist on December 14. The famous writer and filmmaker Neeraj Vora took his last breath at a Mumbai hospital. Neeraj rose to fame with his superhit ‘Hera Pheri’ series. He was all set to direct the third installment of the series and had begun the process of making the film when he suffered a heart attack. After the heart attack followed by a stroke in 2016, the director went into coma. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala then took him to his home and converted a room into a make-shift Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

 

According to Indian Express, filmmaker Ashok Pandit confirmed the news of Neeraj’s demise and said:

“Neeraj Vora died today at 3 am in Criti Care hospital in Juhu. He had been in coma and living at Firoz Nadiadwala’s place. When his condition deteriorated in the night, he was taken to the hospital, where he breathed his last.”

The initial works of Neeraj Vora include Shah Rukh Khan’s famous TV show ‘Circus’. With Ketan Mehta’s ‘Holi’ he made his acting debut in 1984. He has even starred in the films like ‘Rangeela’, ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’, ‘Akele Hum Akele Tum’, ‘Virasat’, ‘Mann’, ‘Satya’, ‘Mast’, ‘Pukar’ and ‘Company’. The last film he did as an actor was ‘Welcome Back’ in 2015.

 

Neeraj Vora was not only a great filmmaker and actor but also a brilliant writer who is famous for writing the first part of the Hera Pheri series (2000) and Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal (2006). The second part of ‘Hera Pheri’ earned him a lot of fame as a director.

 

Neeraj’s Hera Pheri series is one of the best Indian comedy movies. Giving him credit for getting him into the comedy venture, Akshay Kumar said his last goodbye to the brilliant artist.
