RAJU SRIVASTAVA NO MORE: Comedian Raju Srivastava died on Wednesday at AIIMS. Raju Srivastava was admitted in AIIMS for almost a month. Raju Srivastava had suddenly collapsed a month ago while exercising on the treadmill in the gym and he had a heart attack during that time. He was hospitalized for the last 41 days and was put on ventilator. In the meantime, he regained consciousness several times and the family members along with the doctors had hoped that he would soon come out of the hospital after recovering safely.

Raju Srivastava’s neighbor Gyanesh Mishra told that he was very friendly. He never had the pride of success. He was always ready to help people. According to Gyanesh, during 1988-89, when he was spending his days in Mumbai in Muflissi, a man came to him asking for help of Rs 500. He had only 300 rupees at that time and he gave all the money to him. He got only 50 rupees for his first show in Mumbai.

Comedian’s relative and singer Alok Srivastava said that whenever Raju Srivastava used to go to the show, he often used to hide his identity and take experience among the common people. He used to go through the pains and pains of chai walas, paan walas and street vendors and then used to bring them into his character and mimicry as well. His style of connecting with the grassroots characters made him a different personality.

He was a very grounded actor. He did Main Prem Ki Deewani, Tezaab, Maine Pyar Kiya. He also acted in films like Baazigar, Mr Azad, Aamni Athani Kharcha Rupee, Bombay to Goa.
