All of India is praying for the speedy recovery of ace comedian Raju Srivastava, and the OG of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, is one of them.

According to a report by The Times of India, AB sent a video message to the comedian when he learnt from doctors that listening to the voice of a loved one speeds up one's recovery and helps regain consciousness. 

"It's enough Raju. Rise up Raju, and keep teaching us all to laugh," AB said in the video, according to TOI. 

Raju Srivastava is currently on ventilator and although he could not watch or listen to the video clip, it was still played for him on his doctor's advice. 

Raju Srivastava's nephew Kaushal Srivastava, while talking to ETImes, said that the comedian's now showing "positive response" and has also "moved his hand and fingers". "There are no signs of negative results in his reports which is again a positive sign... He is a fighter, he will be back," Kaushal told the news website. 

One of the earlier reports related to his health suggested that Srivastava had passed away, but the family was quick to refute those "rumours". "Raju Srivastava Ji's health is stable and doctors are treating him. Please ignore any kind of rumours. Kindly pray for him," read an Instagram post that was released by the family through the comedian's official IG handle. 

The comedian, who was admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on August 10 following a heart attack while working out at the gym, is known for mimicking the superstar in his shows.

Raju Srivastava burst onto mainstream television with his reality TV stint The Great Indian Laughter Challenge back in 2005. He has been attached to the entertainment industry since the 1980s, according to a report by Zee News.
