Ace comedian and actor Raju Srivastava is admitted to Delhi's AIIMS hospital due to a heart attack. The 58-year-old standup comedian collapsed while running on a treadmill in his hotel room and thus he was immediately rushed to the hospital. As per PTI’s report, Raju’s condition on Thursday morning worsened and he was put on a ‘ventilator.’ Now his close friend and comedian Ahsaan Qureshi has shared an update on Srivastava’s health and revealed that he has been unconscious for the past 25-30 hours.
Speaking with Pinkvilla, Ahsaan made a shocking revelation that Raju’s brain isn't functioning completely and is unresponsive.
