Srivastava was a famous actor as well as a politician. The Samajwadi Party had fielded Srivastava from Kanpur for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. However, he returned the ticket saying that he was not getting enough support from the local units of the party. He later joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on 19 March 2014.

BJP President JP Nadda also condoled Srivastava’s demise and tweeted: “Shocked to hear the news of the demise of renowned comedian Shri Raju Shrivastava ji. He left a different mark in the world of comedy. My thoughts are with his family and fans in this hour of grief. May God place the virtuous soul at his feet. (sic)”
