Raju was admitted to AIIMS Delhi on 10 August after he experienced chest pain and collapsed while working out at a gym.
For 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 had told PTI.
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.
