Actor-comedian Raju Srivastava's brother Deepu Srivastava has said that Raju is out of critical condition and recovering well, as per a report by ANI. The report states that Deepu said in a video message though Raju is still in the hospital, he is sure his brother is getting all the blessing from fans. He added that fans should not believe in any rumours as the comedian is recovering well.

On Thursday, Raju's wife Shikha Srivastava said that he is a "fighter and will come back to be amongst all of us."

Raju Srivastava is currently admitted to Delhi's AIIMS hospital for his treatment. The 58-year-old comedian suffered a severe heart attack on 10 August.


"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," Ms Shikha told 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," she added.


A source also told PTI, "He continues to be on life support and his health condition is critical. He has suffered brain damage. He has not yet gained consciousness."

Earlier Raju’s advisor Ajit Saxena told Aaj Tak, “Today morning, doctors have informed that Raju’s brain is not working, almost in dead condition. Heart is also facing problems. We are all worried and everyone is praying. Even his family is unable to understand what’s happening.”
