Neeraj Vora was born in Bhuj in Gujarat but grew up in Mumbai. His father, Pandit Vinayak Rai Nanalal Vora was a classical musician. Growing up in a musical family he was not allowed to watch bollywood films but his mother was very fascinated by films and used to take Neeraj to watch film secretly. This is how he got interested in films and wanted to be a part of the film industry.

He started out to become a writer and director, but by luck he got into acting. He has been the comedy man of Bollywood since Rangeela. You can see him tickling your bones in films like Welcome Back, Bol Bachchan, Khatta Meetha, Mast, Hello Brother, etc.

His directorial debut was from the film Khiladi 420 starring Akshay Kumar and Mahima Chaudhry in the lead role. The cult comedy film, Hera Pheri was written by him and its sequel Phir Hera Pheri was directed by him. Actor-Director Neeraj Vora was the best of both worlds.

He left for his heavenly abode today at wee hours in a Mumbai hospital. He was in coma after suffering from a heart attack followed by a stroke in 2016. Firoz Nadiadwala treated him as one of his best friends and thus took him from hospital and shifted him to his home and converted a room into a make-shift ICU. Before his stroke he was working on the third instalment of the hit Hera Pheri series. He has begun the process of filming as well. Confirming the news, one of his industry friends, Paresh Rawal took to Twitter and wrote, "Neeraj Vora - The writer n director of Phir Hera Pheri n many hit films is no more ...Aum Shanti."

His initial work as a writer includes the hit TV series Circus in which superstar Shah Rukh Khan played the lead role. He will be cremated today afternoon at 3 pm in Santa Cruz. May his soul rest in peace. It is definitely a big loss for the film industry.
