In the video, Deepu Srivastava said, “Please do not believe the rumours. Your favourite Raju ji is in the ICU in Delhi at one of the best hospitals in the country. The best doctors are treating him. He is also recovering. Raju Bhai is a fighter and he will soon be back with his ‘Comedy Ki Dukaan’. So, don’t worry. Doctors are giving their best. Just pray for his speedy recovery.”
He also asked people to believe only health updates which come from family members. “When the family will share an update, you will know. So, don’t believe anyone else. Just keep patience. Raju ji will be back.”
On Thursday, Raju Srivastava’s wife Shikha Srivastava said her husband is “stable” and the doctors are treating him well.
“He is stable. Doctors are treating him well. Raju ji is a fighter and he will come back to be amongst all of us. We need your prayers and wishes,” Shikha told PTI.
Raju Srivastava, who became a household name after participating in the comedy show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2005, suffered a cardiac arrest while he was working out in a Delhi gym. He was immediately taken to Delhi’s AIIMS.
