Raju Srivastava and his wife Shikha

India lost one of its noted comedians, Raju Srivastava. After staying on life support for more than a month, the King of Comedy breathed his last on Wednesday. He was 58 and is survived by his wife, Sikha and children Ayushmaan Srivastava and Antra Srivastava.

Raju Srivastava was admitted to AIIMS, Delhi after he suffered a heart attack while working out at his gym on August 10. He underwent an angioplasty and was put on a ventilator due to his critical health. The news of his passing away was confirmed by his family, the reports said.

The King of Comedy ruled the comedy realm for over two decades. Fondly known as Gajodhar, Raju Srivastava not only redefined comedy but also set a benchmark that could not be crossed by any other comedian from India. From smashing performances at reality shows to acting in films alongside Bollywood A-listers, the deceased comedian had surely garnered a colossal fan following over the years.

His fans have lived his journey and seen him thrive in his career. But seldom, do people know about his love story and the struggle he went through to marry his lady love Sikha.

Raju Srivastava’s love story

For those uninitiated, the comedian waited for 12 years to tie the knot with Sikha. It all started when Raju was attending his brother’s wedding in Fatehpur and saw Sikha. In one of his old interviews, he had revealed that it was love at first sight and then and there he decided to marry her. He later found out about Sikha being his sister-in-law’s uncle’s daughter.

In the meantime, Raju did not have the grit to confess his feelings to Sikha. In 1982, he moved to Mumbai and had to struggle to make a name in the industry. After gaining recognition, he decided to marry Shikha and sent her letters.

Later, Raju sent a marriage proposal to Sikha’s house and got married on May 17, 1993.

Raju Srivastava has passed away but his legacy will captivate for generations to come. May his soul rest in peace.
