When talking about prominent comedians in India, it’s hard not to talk about the OG comedy king Raju Srivastava. Though he was a part of several well-known movies and television series in the past, he came to the limelight after venturing into comedy by participating in The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. Later, he even took part in Bigg Boss 3, and a few years ago, Raju spoke about the experience and recalled his struggle with KRK.
Srivastava started his career by playing small roles in some big movies like Maine Pyar Kiya, Baazigar, Bombay to Goa and Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya. His jokes in the comedy reality show still feel fresh and it will always tickle your funny bone. Although he has not been very active in movies and television in recent years, he often performs in theater shows in India and abroad.
Previously, Raju Srivastava sat down with stand-up comedian Sorabh Pant for his YouTube show, Wake Up With Sorabh, where he talked about his journey and experience with Bigg Boss. In the same season, KRK also took part in the show. During the conversation, a social media user appreciated Raju for giving savage replies to KRK, arguing with each participant.
Raju Srivastava first spoke about his experience, saying: “Maine kai baar Bigg Boss refuse kiya, kyunki unn dino mere events bohot hote the. Sari dates vol thi, toh mujhe lag raha tha Bigg Boss aunga toh ye sare shows cancel karne padge. Iss show mein jitni problems thi un sabko maine positive way mein liya.”
“Kisi ne kaha ki apko 2-3 mahine ghar mein band kardenge, toh main samaj lunga ki main marine mein hun. Kisi ne kaha, jhadu karna padedga, kapde dhona padega, maine kaha ki ye toh aur maza ayega. Uske baad sabse bada attraction kab hua, jab pata chala usko host kar rahe hain lord bachchan. Hafte mein 2 din btwien hogi aur wohi hua maine khub hasaya. Iss tarah se maine Bigg Boss le liya.”
Raju Srivastava said of his struggle with Kamaal Rashid Khan at the house of Bigg Boss: “KRK, Mujhe lagta hai who plan karke aya tha, ki ‘main thoda sa waha negative wyavhar karunga’, so iss tarah se usne famous hone ka plan kiya hoga. Fir shayad bahar nikalke films miles, rogue ka rol miles. Kyunki socha hoga, ‘Raju Shrivastava idar hasa raha hai, aur Poonam Dhillon, Shilpa Shetty, inke pas toh glamor hai’, usne socha ‘main kya karun’, toh fir usne bottle fek ke mara aur sab kiya. Mujhe lagta hai woh acting kar raha tha. Jahan jahan mujhe laga ki who kisi ko daba raha hai, toh maine kaha mujhe chup nahi rehna chahiyhe, sahi ke sath khahiyada.”
