Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar have almost stopped going to public places. However, if he is mistakenly spotted somewhere, there is so much security around him that we console ourselves by looking at his hair, one of his eyes or his jacket that we saw Shah Rukh Khan today. Is every big bollywood star given this much police protection? Who bears the cost and why is this protection provided? Let us know about this in detail today.

Recently, Annu Kapoor was given security by the Maharashtra Police for his film Hamare Barah. In fact, after the release of the teaser of the film, Annu Kapoor claimed that he was receiving death threats. Also, the team of this film filed a complaint with the police that they are also being threatened in various ways. Many female actors were also included in this team. After this complaint, Annu Kapoor has been given X security by the police.

What is X-Security?

In X-Security, celebrities are provided with two armed police officers for a limited period or until further notice. However, these police officers do not include any commandos. These security officers usually travel in the actors’ cars or their own bikes. Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher have been given X security by the government. Amitabh Bachchan was also given X security by the Maharashtra government. But after the threat they received last year, this protection has been upgraded to Y or Y+ protection after thorough investigation for those who have received death threats.

Y security

Amitabh Bachchan and Vivek Agnihotri have been given Y protection. This security consists of 1 or 2 commandos and 5 to 6 police officers. They are also given one or two vehicles by the government to travel with VIPs. This security costs approximately 10 to 12 lakh rupees per month. Actually, this security is provided by the state government. But according to some reports, many celebrities themselves pay money to the government for this service.

Security is provided in case of threat

As in the film ‘Hamaara Barah’ where more than one person is threatened, similarly where there is a question of security of more than one person, a different arrangement is made by the police. For example, if the team of the film ‘Hamare Barah’ is gathering for a promotional activity in Mumbai’s Andheri area, they report it to the police. And then which is assigned to the local police team at that place. A police officer is sent to the location considering how many women and how many men are in the cast of the film. Women police officers are also involved in this security. In this shift of 6 to 8 hours, the police personnel have to stay there as long as the celebrity is present at the location.

Even when Sanjay Leela Bhansali was threatened by the Karni Sena for the film ‘Padmaavat’, his entire set at Filmcity was guarded by the Goregaon Police Station in Mumbai. When such actors travel outside Mumbai, the police of the place where they are traveling are informed about their travel plans, so that these actors are provided security by the local police. Although there are some Bollywood actors who travel with the security protection provided to them, these are the actors who have been granted Y and Y Plus security by the state government.

Y+ security

Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Kangana Ranaut have been given Y+ protection. Kangana has been given this security by the central government and Bollywood’s ‘Khan’ has been given this security by the Maharashtra government. Actually about 11 people are involved in Y+ Security. This team of 11 consists of 2 to 4 commandos and 7 to 9 police officers. Along with this, they are provided with bulletproof cars and one or two police vans for travel. This security costs 15 to 16 lakh rupees per month. Keeping in mind the security of celebrities at Y+ Security, special care is taken to ensure that this team is not changed too often. Security is increased if a celebrity is attacked or attempted to be attacked. Salman Khan’s security has been increased after the shooting at his house.

Y+ Security provides police officer protection not only to the celebrities but also to the family members of the celebrities. For example, when Shah Rukh Khan’s son AbRam goes to visit ‘Lalbagh Cha Raja’, he is accompanied by police officials. If Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma goes to promote a film, he is given security by a police officer from the local police station.

Private security

From Salman Khan to Shah Rukh Khan to Amitabh Bachchan, all these big celebrities are being given security by the government. But actors also arrange private security to protect themselves and their families. Shera handles the security of Salman Khan and his family. Amitabh Bachchan was a client of actor Ronit Roy’s security agency for a long time. Apart from this, many actors like Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Kiara Advani and Siddharth Malhotra have also hired expensive private security for themselves.
