54-year-old writer-director-actor Neeraj Vora passed away today early morning after being in coma for nearly a year. Neeraj was a multi-talented personality who not just acted in films but also wrote few iconic comedy films like HERA PHERI and GOLMAAL. He even dabbled his hands into direction with laugh riot like PHIR HERA PHERI and tickled the funny bones. The filmmaker was also working on the much talked about and awaited third installment of HERA PHERA 3 but unfortunately he left for the
heavenly abode untimely.
Neeraj’s journey in acting began with Ketan Mehta’s HOLI and later he even did TV shows like ‘Choti Nadi Baatein' and ‘Circus’ (that starred Shah Rukh Khan in the lead). However he came in limelight as he did a small stint in RANGEELA, for which he had written the script. Post that there was no looking back for him and he became a part of several projects like Anil Kapoor’s VIRASAT, Aamir Khan’s MANN, SATYA, MAST, PUKAR, DHADKAN and others. His last film was WLECOME BACK that released two years back.
As we bid a tearful adieu to the multi-faceted Neeraj Vora, we take a look at some of his memorable films & performances in Bollywood, either in the capacity of an actor or writer or director.
