Mr Srivastava has been unconscious for the past 46 hours. His nephew, on the other hand, stated earlier this evening that his uncle’s health was improving. He was being given milk through a tube and responding to therapy, according to the doctors, who added that he might take a few days to regain awareness.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi contacted comedian and Uttar Pradesh Film Development Council chairman Raju Srivastava’s wife today to inquire about his health and gave assistance, according to family sources. The comedian is still on a ventilator, and his condition has not improved, according to reports this morning. He is being treated under the supervision of AIIMS-leading physicians.

The 58-year-old stand-up comic was brought to the hospital on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack. He had angioplasty. According to hospital authorities, “he is serious and on a ventilator in the ICU.” He had been in Delhi for four or five days before his health began to deteriorate.

Raju Srivastava was transported to AIIMS after experiencing severe chest discomfort while working out on the treadmill at the Cult gym in Delhi’s South Extension. Since then, he has been getting treatment. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath have all inquired about Raju Srivastava’s condition.

He has acted in several Hindi films, including “Maine Pyar Kiya,” “Baazigar,” “Bombay to Goa” (remake), and “Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya.” He was a participant in season three of “Bigg Boss.”
