There have been several reports of ace comedian Raju Srivastava being brain dead at AIIMS Hospital in Delhi after he suffered a heart attack while working out on a treadmill at a gym. However, the ace comedian’s manager has lashed out at a few hate mongers for sharing fake news and called the rumours baseless.

Raju’s manager Maqbool denied the comedian was brain dead and said the doctors were continuously working on the treatment for his quick recovery.


Taking to his Insta stories, he wrote, “Raju Srivastava Ji’s health is stable and doctors are treating him. Please ignore any kind of rumours. Please pray for him.”

He requested his fans and other hate-mongers and fake news peddlers to be mindful and not spread wrong rumours against the actor as it mentally affects his family. He said Raju is a fighter and will come out strong from the hospital.

On the other hand, his family had also released a statement a few days back about his health condition. After rumours spread that he was critical and might pass away any time soon, Raju's family released an official statement stating that he was stable and one shouldn't spread rumours of his death.



Meanwhile, some reports also claimed that a top neurologist from Kolkata has been summoned for the comedian's treatment.
Worth mentioning, Raju Srivastava fell unconscious while working out at a gym and was admitted to AIIMS on August 10. Fans are praying for him to get well soon.

On the professional front, Raju was part of television shows like The Great Indian Laughter Challenge and Dekh Bhai Dekh. He has also appeared in a couple of movies like Bombay to Goa and Akshay Kumar-starrer Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.

Hours before the heart attack, Raju had shared a video on his Instagram handle mimicking some of the Bollywood biggies.
