The status of well-known actor-comedian Raju Srivastava, who is still on life support in the ICU, has somewhat improved, according to his business manager on Tuesday.
After having a heart attack on August 10, Srivastava was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in this city. On the same day, the 58-year-old stand-up comedian had an angioplasty.
“Raju’s condition is gradually improving. He is receptive to the therapy. His health has improved, and he can now move several of his bodily parts.
He is still on a ventilator and in the ICU. According to the doctors, he won’t be aware for roughly a week, the artist’s manager Nayan Soni told PTI.
The family of Srivastava posted a statement on his official Instagram profile last week stating that he was in “stable” condition and asking people to “ignore any rumor/fake news being disseminated.”
Srivastava, a well-known figure in the entertainment business since the 1980s, shot to prominence in 2005 after taking part in the inaugural season of the reality stand-up comedy program “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.”
