Comedian Raju Shrivastava gets threat from Pakistan

Comedian Raj Shrivatava has received threatening phone calls from Pakistan at his Mumbai home. The police have upgraded his security following the threats.

Shrivastava had approached the police complaining that he was threatened of dire consequences. The anonymous caller who claimed to be calling from the neighbouring country, warned him about cracking jokes regarding Pakistan.

It is believed that the threats could be regarding the stand up TV comedian's jokes which he cracks on live TV shows. Shrivastava, who achieved national fame after the Laughter Show on Star TV, is a regular feature at television shows.

Taking his complaint seriously, the Mumbai police have provided him security and also begun investigations into the source of the phone call. Recently, another comedian, Pakistani comic artiste Shakeel Siddiqui, was in the news when MNS goons had roughed him up and forced him to leave India.
