Johnny Lever spoke to the media at the event, and remembered his bond with the late comedian. He said, “Raju’s struggle days started with me. We have family relations, and we are neighbours as well. So you can imagine how much grief I am in. We have lost a great artist, he would have made people laugh for many more years, but he suddenly died. It’s a huge loss for stand-up comedy.”

Raju died on September 21 at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after 41 days of hospitalisation. He was 58. The comedian was admitted to the hospital after he experienced chest pain and collapsed while working out at the gym in a Delhi hotel. He went into a coma following the cardiac arrest.

He was cremated in Delhi’s Nigambodh Ghat on September 22 as per Hindu rituals. His colleagues Sunil Pal and Ahsaan Qureshi, director Madhur Bhandarkar and singer Ram Shankar among others joined his family to pay him tribute at his funeral.
