    Popular comedian-actor Raju Srivastava is "critical and on a ventilator" in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the national capital.
    According to news reports, he also suffered immense brain damage after cardiac arrest. Srivastava's friend Ahsaan Qureshi told the DNA that his brain isn't functioning completely.
