Raju Srivastav Passes Away: Fellow Comedian Sunil Pal Expresses Grief, “I Wish A Miracle Would Have Saved Raju Bhai”
Suni Pal, the comedian who won the first season of ‘The Great India Laughter Challenge’, where Raju Srivastav was the first runner-up, said his late friend was justifiably called the ‘King of Comedy’.
Pal, who over the past 43 days, often asked admirers of the late comedian to stay positive and pray for his recovery, was in tears when he spoke about him.
Sunil Pal said, “He (Raju Srivastav) was fighting a battle for the past 40 days and never thought even in my dreams that he would leave us like this.
“I had wished this day would never come. It’s painful news for his family and everyone close to him. Even now I wish a miracle happens and he comes back,” said Sunil Pal about Raju Srivastav.
On August 25, in fact, Sunil Pal had informed his fans that the late comedian Raju Srivastav had regained consciousness, but that glimmer of hope turned out to be short-lived.
This morning, comedian Raju Srivastav passed away after battling life for 42 days in the hospital. He was admitted to AIIMS after he collapsed in a gym while working out on a treadmill. Raju is survived by wife Shikha and two kids.
