Comedian Raju Srivastava gained consciousness on Thursday after 15 days, Garvit Narang, his Personal Secretary said. The comedian is being monitored by doctors at AIIMS Delhi.
“He is stable and still unconscious. Doctors are treating him,” Srivastava’s daughter Antara said.
Last week amid reports of his deteriorating health, his wife Shikha had said Srivastava is a “fighter” who will come back stronger.
Shikha had also requested the media and the fans to not spread rumours as it affects the family’s “morale”.
The 58-year-old stand-up comedian was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after he suffered a heart attack on August 10. He underwent an angioplasty the same day.
