QuickE: SRK Gets Female Bodyguards, Kapil Takes the Blame & More

1. SRK Now Has Female Bodyguards and It’s Not For Feminist Reasons

At the recently held India Today Conclave, Shah Rukh Khan shared the challenges of being a superstar of his stature. Referring to the recent incident in which his driver accidentally drove over a photographer’s foot, he joked about how he was perceived by the media for it and also, why he has now employed female bodyguards.

Shah Rukh might forget lines, but he never forgets his sense of humour at home. Watch the video of his session with Koel Puri Rinchet that is doing the rounds on social media.

Shah Rukh Khan, ActorIf you’re stepping out, you have to smell good. Brush your teeth, hair should be soft, you should smell very very good. That’s the secret you need to follow. My pictures in my car, when I’m coming for a party, are always growling. It is scary. I have a lot of ladies who like me and want to smell me, so I have lady bodyguards now. It was getting rude when men were pushing women while trying to protect me. Women have lovely long nails, and their love hurts, and it is difficult explaining to your kids and wife the nail marks.

He also added that it’s their family matter and they would resolve the issue.

Kapil SharmaYes, I had an argument with him. But are we not normal people? I shouted at him for the first time in 5 years. Itna toh chalta hai bhai. We will sit and talk it out, where is the problem? I love him as a artist and as a human being. He is like my elder brother. Why so much negativity all the time? We spend a lot of time together rather than our families and sometime it happens in families. It’s our family matter. We will sort this out.
