Filmmaker and actor Neeraj Vora passed away in the city today. He was in a coma for a year and breathed his last in a suburban hospital.

A lot of Bollywood celebrities attended his funeral today. Parel Rawal, Sajid Nadiadwala, Ashutosh Gowariker, Rajeev Mehta and others were clicked at Neeraj Vora's funeral today to pay him their last respects.

Check out their pictures below:


For the uninitiated, Neeraj has starred in movies such as Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Rangeela, Daud: Fun on the Run, Satya, Mann, Baadshah, Bol Bachchan with his last acting credit being Welcome Back in 2015. He is also credited as the writer for some classic movies like Hera Pheri and Rangeela. He started his journey as a director in 2000 with Khiladi 420. He then went on to direct Phir Hera Pheri. 

Neeraj was supposed to direct Hera Pheri 3. However, the actor suffered a massive heart attack and a brain stroke in October, last year. He was rushed to AIIMS and unfortunately was in a state of coma which lasted for a year. He was shifted to close friend Sajid Nadiadwala's Juhu bungalow Barkat Villa which was converted into an ICU.

A while back Neeraj was showing some signs of progress as Nadiadwala said in an interview, "He’s been responding to audio therapy, particularly when we play his father’s (Pandit Vinayak Rai Nanalal Vora) music. He has yet to recover his speech but there are no infections or bed sores and the doctors have assured us that his life is out of danger."

On the other hand, when Suniel Shetty was asked about Hera Pheri 3, the actor replied to a leading tabloid, "We must make it (part 3) for fans... I believe he (Neeraj) is doing better now. Once he is fit, we will roll out the film."
