A Bollywood star’s entourage is incomplete without his personal bodyguard who is silently seeing performing his duty of protecting the celebrity from fanatic fans and celebrity-obsessed media. Tasked with the duty of keeping over-eager fans at an arm’s length, being a personal bodyguard to a celebrity is no mean feat. However, seems like some are simply destined for the job such as Aamir Khan’s personal bodyguard Yuvraj Ghorpade.
Yuvraj Ghorpade is always seen by Aamir Khan’s side like a shadow. From public events to film sets, Yuvraj is spotted with Aamir come hail and storm.
Yuvraj Ghorpade, who wanted to pursue bodybuilding, ended up being Aamir Khan’s personal security after things didn’t work out for him as he has wished them to. A school dropout, Yuvraj Ghorpade’s life took a turn when he joined Ace Security and subsequently got the job of Aamir Khan’s security.
As per reports, Yuvraj Ghorpade dropped out of school at the age of 16 and was doing odd jobs until he joined a security agency and then ended up as Aamir Khan’s personal bodyguard.
In a 2011 interview with Express Tribune, Aamir Khan’s bodyguard Yuvraj Ghorpade had said, “The future was dark for me as I was doing odd jobs for survival until I decided to join Ace Security nine years ago.”
“Today, I am the bodyguard for (the actor-producer-director) Aamir Khan and many of my friends are envious of the fact that I roam with such a big celebrity all the time,” he added.
