Phir Hera Pheri director Neeraj Vora passes away


Bollywood actor and filmmaker Neeraj Vora passed away in a Mumbai hospital on Thursday morning after being in the coma for almost a year.

The 54-year-old actor suffered a heart attack in 2016 following which he had been comatose.

He will be taken back to filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala's house 'Barkat', where he had been living since the heart attack. The Nadiadwalas had converted a room in their home into a makeshift ICU.

Vora directed and acted in many films through 90s. His noteworthy directorials include 'Khiladi 420' starring Akshay Kumar and Mahima Chaudhary and 'Phir Hera Pheri' among other films. He was, in fact, working on the third installment of the popular franchise.

He was a regular face in many RGV films like 'Rangeela', 'Daud' and 'Mast'. He will be cremated today afternoon in Mumbai.
