In his school time he used to imitate his teachers. He gained initial stardom as an Amitabh Bachchan look-alike and also imitated him very well.

His big break, however, was the comedy talent show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. Although he didn't win the competition and only received a 2nd runner-up title, he followed that stint with some memorable stage performances in the spin-off, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge - Champions, where he was unofficially given the coveted title “The King of Comedy”. After that, he was noticed by many filmmakers and got regular assignments in movies with bigger roles. Raju has been an avid supporter of good comedy and criticized vulgarity. Raju's daughter got president's medal for bravery. Raju has got good support from voters. He participated in Big Boss - 3, Indian counterpart of the Big Brother. But after staying in the house for more than two months India voted him out on December 4, 2009, which was unfortunate because he was one of the most sane inmates at Big Boss's. He wants Vindu Dara Singh to win Bigg Boss season 3 as he thinks Vindu is good at heart. Tanaaz Irani and Aditi Govitrikar were highly criticized for pulling off Raju's pants on national television in Bigg Boss house.
