However, I started my career by watching him on The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, I was eight years old when I used to perform on stage for live shows and used to mimic The Great Raju Srivastava. When I got the chance to come on TV, at the age of 10, on Doordarshan, I performed all Raju Bhai’s content and from there I got more shows. Then I met him in Mumbai at some event and I told him that I have performed all his items on stage all my childhood and Raju Bhai said – ‘Arre, tum bahut acha kaam kar rahe ho Sidharth’.”
Raju Srivastava death:
He adds, “Then after I kept meeting him at events and shows. Raju Bhai was the only artist who ever called me up after a tough phase in my life. And asked me, ‘How’s everything Sidharth? Do you need anything? I am your elder brother, if you ever need help or you are in any trouble, let me know, I’m always a call away.’ His words gave me strength and his concern helped me a lot. I have huge respect and love for Raju Bhai. He was a great comedian, a great human being and a beautiful soul. May his soul Rest in Peace.”
