Salman Khan may not be frequenting the YRF Studios as much as before. What with Ek Tha Tiger being declared a hit and the actor getting busy with Dabangg 2 shoot in Satara. But for most at the production house, Khan’s wish is still their command.
And thus, when recently, the actor called up YRF head honcho Aditya Chopra and asked him to consider a new security agency Shootcare (started by the actor’s reliable makeupman Sudesh Nag), Adi didn’t think twice.
Mirror has learnt that the security contract for the next YRF film has now gone to Nag’s agency as opposed to YRF’s trusted Ace Security and Protection, owned by Ronit Roy.
Roy’s company has provided security for several YRF and Y-Films ventures including, Dil Bole Hadippa, Luv Ka The End, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, Mere Brother Ki Dulhann, Band Bajaa Baraat and even Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Chak De! India.
Shootcare, on the other hand, apart from guarding Khan’s residence Galaxy Apartments in Bandra, has worked on films like Dabangg 2, Preity Zinta’s Ishqk In Paris, Heroine, Bol Bachchan and Oh My God.
Roy explained that they did not have an ‘all inclusive’ contract with YRF but were hired for specific projects. Sounding composed, he told us, “I wish the new security service providers the very best.”
YRF spokesperson , when contacted, simply said, “We work with both agencies for our multiple projects.“
