Raju Srivastava considered Amitabh his guru. Amitabh’s number was also registered as a Guru in his Mobai. When Raju was admitted to AIIMS Hospital in Delhi, he did not even open his eyes. They haven’t spoken to anyone either. Since then, Amitabh was sending audio messages for Raju. Hearing this message, Raju opened his eyes for a while. But then closed forever.

With that, Bachchan expressed his grief over Raju’s death and paid tribute to him on the blog. He mentions the loss of a good friend with the departure of Raju. Antara wrote in her post: “I am grateful to Amitabh Bachchan’s uncle because he supported us in difficult times. Their prayers and ours gave us strength and support. We are indebted to them. You were my father’s role model, inspiration and mentor.
Antaran further wrote in the post, “Ever since dad first saw you on screen, you were always with him. They follow you on screen as well as off screen. He also saved your number as Guruji’s name. You used to live in daddy’s room. After hearing the audio clip you sent, they even moved a bit. This will show how important you are to them. My mother Shikha, my brother Ayushmann and I Antara are very grateful to you. Dad was loved by everyone. It was because of you. Thank you very much uncle…’
