Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover took to their official social media handles to mourn the untimely demise of fellow comedian Raju Srivastava.
One of the most popular and adored comedians of our country, known for his unique sense of clean comedy, Raju Srivastava breathed his last today. While his family is devastated, his fans are heartbroken. His fellow comedians and good friends from the industry, on the other hand, are still coming to terms with his untimely demise. Remembering him with an emotional post on social media, Sunil Grover shared, “RIP Raju Srivaastva Ji. He made the whole country laugh. It’s sad today that he has gone, too soon. My condolences to family and friends🙏.”
Another fellow comedian, who shared a very close bond with Raju, is Kapil Sharma . After Comedy Circus, the two reunited for Comedy Nights with Kapil where they worked together for three long years. Raju was also a prominent part of The Kapil Sharma Show from 2016-2017. Along with a precious throwback photo of them clicked on set, Kapil shared an emotional note which read: “आज पहली बार आपने रुलाया है राजू भाई 💔 काश एक मुलाक़ात और हो जाती। ईश्वर आपको अपने चरणों में स्थान दें। आप बहुत याद आएँगे।अलविदा 🙏 ओम् शांति.”
Last month, Raju was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed while working out at the gym. He had suffered a heart attack. On 25th August, his daughter Antara Srivastava penned a note for fans sharing that he had been put on a ventilator, but was stable and recovering slowly. On 21st September, today morning, it was reported that he has bid the world a final adieu. The late comedian’s last rites will be performed by his family at Nigambodh Ghat in Delhi tomorrow.
May he rest in peace.
