Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has appointed a couple of female bodyguards to prevent himself from getting mobbed by his female fans and also to ensure that the fans don’t feel bad when restrained from approaching him.
Referred to by the Mumbai press as ‘King Khan’, Shah Rukh Khan’s on-going projects include Tubelight, The Ring and an untitled project directed by Anand L. Rai.
Despite his 51 years of age, Shah Rukh has a large number of female fans who mob him wherever he goes. When mobbed by his female fans, Shah Rukh doesn’t want them to be restrained and kept at a distance by male bodyguards as fans may not like it to be touched by them.
In order to ensure that female fans don’t feel disturbed, Shah Rukh has kept a couple of female bodyguards. “I respect women and I only feel it’s just right to appoint female bodyguards to keep my female fan at some distance,” he says.
With a glint of mischief, Shah Rukh also adds that he is also forced to ‘explain’ the bruises caused on his hands when he shakes hands with his female fans who have sharp, long nails!
