Govinda’s nephew Vinay Anand, who has worked with Raju Srivastava in ‘Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya’, spoke about the comedian. In the exclusive interview with ETimes, Vinay got emotional and said, “We have worked together in several famous Bollywood movies. During his struggling days, Raju ji used to visit my uncle Govinda’s place and had a good rapport with him. I had also done some shows with him from where I came to know that he had very good observation skills. Apart from great acting, she was a fantastic person and was very down to earth. He was very humble while talking to any person.”
He further added, “I was very shocked when I came to know that he passed away. He was also a very good friend of mine. Everybody should be like Raju Srivastava, who laughed and made the world laugh too. My condolences to his family. They faced a very strong time while Raju was in hospital since last month. Raju ji is not there today but he will always be in our heart.”
Raju has featured in numerous popular Bollywood films like ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, ‘Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya’, ‘Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon’ and others.
