Bollywood's finest writer-actor-filmmaker Neeraj Vora, passed away in Mumbai on Thursday, months after being comatose, his family members said.
Vora took his last breath at 4 am at a Andheri Hospital
"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 Vora, Neeraj's younger brother said.
Known for writing Rangeela, directing Phir Hera Pheri and acting in Bol Bachchan, Neeraj has had a humorous streak on and off screen.
For months altogether, a room in filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala's home was converted into a fully functional ICU for Vora.
Nadiadwala mourned his demise, 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).
"He had to be shifted to hospital. But it was of no use. We lost him."
Born in a Gujarati family, Vora came to be known in the film industry for the way he tackled humor through his acting, writing and directorial projects.
He was also closely associated with theater. In fact, Golmaal: Fun Unlimited, which started the hit comedy franchise, was based on the Gujarati play Aflatoon by Mihir Bhuta and Neeraj.
They had adapted from it from Harsh Shivsharan's original Marathi play Ghar-Ghar.
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.
