Mumbai: Mourning the death of Neeraj Vora, Aamir Khan remembered the writer-director-actor as someone who carried laughter with him.

Aamir played the lead role in 'Rangeela', which was written by Vora, who passed away on Thursday after being in coma for over a year. He was 54.

"Neeraj was a close friend, a collaborator, a vibrant force of life. His tragic illness and then demise is a loss not only to those close to him but also to the creative world," Aamir, 52, said in a statement.

The actor said it is hard to believe that Vora is no more.

"His sense of humour will be missed sorely. Laughter travelled with him. Even as I am writing this, I cannot believe that he is not with us anymore. Thank you Neeraj for all the joy you brought to my life. I will miss you. My heartfelt condolences all in his family," he said.

Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to condole his death.

Several other celebrities also expressed their grief about the talented artiste's death.
