If reports are to be believed, the man entered the ICU wearing a coat, pretending to be a doctor.

The comedian's family and friends are reportedly quite shaken after the incident and are considering it a breach of the actor's privacy. As per the report, no one is being allowed inside the ICU now without due permissions.

Srivastava was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhiafter he suffered a heart attack on August 10. The 58-year-old stand-up comic underwent an angioplasty the same day.
