Bollywood veteran actor and filmmaker Neeraj Vora died at a Mumbai hospital on Thursday morning after being in a coma for almost a year. The 54-year-old actor was at the residence of producer Firoz Nadiadwala but was rushed to a hospital when his condition deteriorated.
Bollywood lost one of the most entertaining personalities of all time. Vora’s younger brother Uttank Vora told media channels that he died at 4 a.m. at an Andheri hospital. Vora was 54. From the hospital, his body was taken to the house of producer Firoz Nadiadwala, who had been looking after him for over a year, and later to the electric crematorium in Santa Cruz. For months altogether, a room in Nadiadwala’s home Barkat was converted into a fully functional ICU for Vora. Nadiadwala mourned his decease, saying: I’ve lost the battle to save my brother and friend from the clutches of death. His health had improved so much. But it deteriorated suddenly on Friday (December 8).
Neeraj Vora was a multi-talented personality in Bollywood and was associated with some very successful projects of the industry. Vora has been part of many movies and has directed few too. 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.
May his soul rest in peace.
