I was very saddened to hear about the passing away of my friend and brother Raju Srivastava. He stayed in the same building of Samarth Angan in Lokhandwala as I did during my Bollywood struggling days. I had a flat on the first floor and he used to live on the 23 rd floor of the same building. I would often see him come to the gym and meet him at his place to talk about movie scripts and stories. He also endorsed one of my own books Survival and I had taken a picture with him then.

He was a funny man and a great comedian my heart goes out to him and his wife Shikha Ji who I had also met during my various visits to his flat. He would often give live shows to people in our building during the Diwali Parties of our society.
He went away too early and that’s a tragedy of sorts. Nonetheless, I hope his family can find the strength to carry on with his memories and rebuild their lives after his sad demise.
