Bollywood stars like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Aamir Khan spend a huge amount on their maintenance both for fitness and security. Whenever a star walks out of his car at any event or even for his shooting, he is preceded or accompanied by a bodyguard who ensures that the way is clear all through for the superstar to move ahead.
While the lives of these celebrities are quite precious, these bodyguards on their part at times risk their lives to protect their bosses and that is why they are paid huge remuneration for their services. The close bonding between Salman Khan and his famous bodyguard Shera is quite well known among Bollywood fans. The superstar even copied his style in his hit movie Bodyguard.
According to reports, Shera is not only his bodyguard but also is treated as a family member by the Khan family. Salman Khan pays Shera Rs 2 crore annually. But there is someone else who pays his bodyguard more than Salman Khan and it is none other than Shah Rukh Khan.
SRK’s bodyguard Ravi Singh is paid Rs 2.7 crore annually. He does not like to be in front of the camera much but never compromises when it comes to keeping the Badshah Khan safe. Aamir Khan pays Rs 2 crore to his bodyguard Yuvraj Ghorpade. He has been with the Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood for a long time.
Amitabh Bachchan’s longtime bodyguard Jitendra Shinde takes good care of Big B whenever he is in a crowd or at social events. The Shahenshah pays him Rs 1.5 crore annually. Akshay Kumar’s bodyguard Shresay Thele takes home Rs 1.2 crore for protecting Khiladi Kumar.
