Writer-actor-filmmaker Neeraj Vora passes away

Mumbai, Dec 14: Bollywood's multi-faceted talent Neeraj Vora, known for writing "Rangeela" and for directing "Phir Hera Pheri", died here early on Thursday, months after being comatose, his family member said.

Neeraj's younger brother Uttank Vora told IANS that Neeraj died at 4 a.m. at a Andheri hospital. He was 54.

"He will be taken to Firoz Nadiadwala's house Barkat from where he will be taken to the Santa Cruz Electric Crematorium at 3 p.m.," Uttank said.

According to reports earlier in 2017, a room in filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala's home was converted into a fully functional ICU for Neeraj.

Born in a Gujarati family, Neeraj came to be known in the film industry for the way he tackled humour through his acting, writing and directorial projects.

As a writer, he worked on films like "Rangeela", "Akele Hum Akele Tum", "Josh", "Badshah", "Chori Chori Chupke Chupke", "Awara Paagal Deewana", "Deewane Huye Paagal", "Ajnabee" and "Hera Pheri" and "Phir Hera Pheri".

His directorial projects include "Khiladi 420" and "Phir Hera Pheri". He was to direct "Hera Pheri III", but uncertainty loomed large over the project after he suffered a stroke in October 2016.
