Raju Srivastava, who had been a celebrated comedian for years now, suffered a sudden heart attack when he was exercising in the gym in Delhi on August 10. He was rushed to the hospital and had been on a ventilator since then. On September 21, the comedian passed away, leaving fans in mourning. His family is heartbroken and grieving. While Raju Srivastava was a talented comedian, do you know that his daughter Antara is equally skilled?
Who is Antara Srivastava?
Raju Srivastava's daughter Antara may not take the legacy of her father forward by venturing into stand-up comedy, but she is a part of the showbiz. She is a director by profession and has assisted in many films.
Interestingly, Antara is also a National Gallantry award winner. She received the honour when she was just 12. What happened is that thieves broke into Raju Srivastava's house when only Antara and her mother were present. It was reported that the thieves carried many weapons in order to rob the house. However, Antara managed to sneak into the bedroom and called her father and the police to report the incident. She even called for help from the bedroom window.
Antara then was awarded the National Bravery Award in 2006 for her courage from then president APJ Abdul Kalam.
