Comedian Raju Srivastava passed away in Delhi on Wednesday at the age of 58.

His family confirmed his death. The comedian died after 41 days of hospitalisation.

Raju was admitted to AIIMS Delhi on August 10 after he experienced chest pain and collapsed while working out at the gym. Over a month after he was admitted to the hospital following a heart attack, Raju was on a ventilator.

Recently, his brother Dipoo Srivastava had said that the comedian was recovering slowly but was unconscious.

"The recovery is slow. He will be fine soon. He is stable and on a ventilator. He is still unconscious. It's been 35 days but doctors are saying they are doing their best. We need all your prayers," Dipoo told an Indian news agency.

When asked if the family was planning to shift the comedian to any other hospital in Mumbai, where Raju resided, Dipoo had said there were no such plans. "He will be treated at AIIMS and we will take him home after he has recovered. We have faith in the doctors," he had added.
