Raju Srivastava's Health Update Popular comedian-actor Raju Srivastava is on the road to recovery. He's slowly recuperating. His business manager said there is a slight improvement in his condition, though he continues to remain in the ICU on life support. Srivastava was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here after he suffered a heart attack on August 10.

The 58-year-old stand-up comic underwent an angioplasty the same day.

"Raju's condition is slowly getting better." He is responding to the treatment. There is an improvement in his health and he can now move his body parts a bit. He continues to remain in the ICU and on a ventilator. "Doctors have informed us that it will take about a week for him to regain consciousness," the artist's manager, Nayan Soni, told PTI.

Last Friday, Srivastava's family released a statement on his official Instagram page, saying his condition was "stable" and requesting people to "ignore any rumours/fake news being circulated."

The message read, "Dear all, Raju Srivatava ji's condition is stable. We are praying for his speedy recovery. The doctors are treating him and are doing their best. Thanks to all the well-wishers for their continued love and support. Please ignore any rumours or fake news being circulated. Please pray for him (sic)."

A familiar face in the entertainment industry since the 1980s, Srivastava was catapulted to fame after participating in the first season of the reality stand-up comedy show "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge" in 2005.

Srivastava has featured in Hindi films such as "Maine Pyar Kiya", "Baazigar", the remake of "Bombay to Goa" and "Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya". He is also the chairman of the Film Development Council of Uttar Pradesh.
