While many were mourning the demise of stand-up comedian Raju Srivastava on Thursday, another stand-up comedian Rohan Joshi’s comment gathered limelight. In his comment, Rohan bashed Raju and called his demise ‘good riddance.’ Now, the comedian took down the comment and even clarified why.
Rohan took down his unabashed comment after being massively trolled. It was one comment which let Rohan believe it ‘wasn’t the day for his personal feelings.’
Atul Khatri had sent out a condolence message to Raju’s family on social media. Although he said it was a huge loss to the comic industry, Rohan was of a completely different opinion.
“We haven’t lost a thing,” Rohan commented. Soon, he recalled the times when Raju took a dig at the young comedians. Rohan penned that Raju would s**t over the new comedians.
Raju, much like the many veteran comedians, was not too fond of new-age comedy and he dissed it on news channels. Rohan recalled that and added that Raju understood ‘nothing about the spirit of comedy or defending someone’s right to say something even if you don’t agree.’
He ended his comment stating, “F**k him and good riddance.” This did not go down well with many and after one comment, Rohan deleted his comment.
Why did the comedian delete his comment? He justifies, “Yahi soch kar delete kiya kyuki after a minute of anger I realised today is not about my personal feelings. Sorry if it hurt and thanks for the perspective.”
Raju Srivastava was being treated at AIIMS after he had a heart attack on August 10. His mortal remains were cremated in Delhi’s Nigambodh Ghat on Thursday morning.
