Amitabh Bachchan pays tribute to Raju Srivastava, 'His sense of timing and sense of humor will live on...'


Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Thursday paid tribute to comedian Raju Srivastava and remembered him for his everyday humor. Srivastava, who died on Wednesday after 41 days of hospitalization at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), was an ardent fan of Bachchan since his teenage years. His resemblance to the cinema icon and his impersonation got him his first big break.

“Another colleague, friend and creative artist has left us. Sudden illness and before time, before his creative time ends, his sense of time and the humor he was born with will be with us. It is unique, expressive, expressive. And full of humor. He is now Smiles from heaven and causes joy with God,” Bachchan wrote on his blog.

Srivastava, 58, was rushed to AIIMS after suffering a heart attack while exercising at a Delhi hotel on August 10. He underwent angioplasty and was later on a ventilator.
In the post, Bachchan shared that he sent a voice note to Srivastava’s family to help with the stand-up artiste’s treatment.

“Every morning I was instructed to send a voice with him to the spirit and information from those nearby to wake him up. I did, and they read it to him in his ears. On one occasion he opened, looked a little and left,” said the veteran actor.

Srivastava, a popular name in India’s stand-up comedy circuit, first came to Mumbai when Bachchan suffered a life-threatening injury during the shooting of “Coolie”. The association with Bachchan continued over the years and even today Srivastava has a photograph of the star as a permanent fixture in his home.

Raju Srivastava’s body was cremated at Nigam Bodh forest in the presence of friends and family on Thursday morning.
