The 58-year-old comedian Raju Srivastava suffered from a heart attack and had been admitted to AIIMS hospital a month ago.
After being hospitalised, Raju Srivastava remained unconscious for 14 days. At a Delhi gym, he started experiencing chest pain, and then he passed out. He subsequently underwent angioplasty.
Ajit Saxena, who shared Raju's health update with a news portal, was cited as stating that Raju tried communicating with his wife Shikha Srivastava after gaining more movement. Additionally, he stated that Raju's health is "steadily improving" because he is now putting forth effort to recover quickly.
According to the reports, Raju Srivastava is only being visited by his wife at the hospital due to the possibility of infection. She also mentioned that his hands and feet had made a very small twitch. Additionally, he has also tried to interact with her and opened his eyes. Days have passed since Antara Srivastava, Raju's daughter, said the comedian is stable.
Following Raju's hospitalisation, there were online rumours about his deteriorating health. His wife responded by pleading with people not to "spread rumours."
She told news agency PTI, “My sincere request is kindly do not spread rumours. It affects our morale. We do not want negative energy, we need positivity. Please pray for his speedy recovery and he will be back soon. Doctors are giving their best and Raju ji is supporting them, He is fighting. So, kindly do not spread negativity."

Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya, Baazigar, Maine Pyar Kiya, and Bombay to Goa are few of the movies he has been in. He also serves as the chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Film Development Council.
