Aamir Khan’s journey to fame hasn’t gone unnoticed. And when you are at a level like that of the PK actor, you need top-notch security. But he seems to have taken care of that as his personal bodyguard Yuvraj Ghorpade has been the actor’s shadow. From public events to film sets, Yuvraj is spotted with Aamir everywhere. A bodyguard’s job is certainly risky as they ensure that the celebrity is well-protected and is not in any sort of trouble.
Yuvraj wanted to pursue his career in bodybuilding but things didn’t work out. In an earlier interview with Express Tribune, he 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.”
According to Times Now, he takes home around Rs 2 crore annually to keep the actor safe. His annual salary is way more than our lifetime savings but his job does have massive risks and obviously very little time for his family.
On the professional front, Aamir Khan is gearing up for his upcoming movie Laal Singh Chaddha. The movie that has been the talk of the town will be releasing soon. Laal Singh Chaddha is the official remake of the Hollywood movie Forrest Gump.

On the personal front, Aamir Khan and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao announced separation after 15 years of being together, in the month of July.
In their joint statement, they said, “In these 15 beautiful years together we have shared a lifetime of experiences, joy, and laughter, and our relationship has only grown in trust, respect, and love. Now we would like to begin a new chapter in our lives – no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other. We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalize this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does.”
The statement further addressed issues where both Aamir and Kiran would be equal stakeholders. “We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together. We will also continue to work as collaborators on films, Paani Foundation, and other projects that we feel passionate about. A big thank you to our families and friends for their constant support and understanding about this evolution in our relationship, and without whom we would not have been so secure in taking this leap. We request our well-wishers for good wishes and blessings and hope that – like us – you will see this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey. Thanks and love, Kiran and Aamir,” the statement further added.
The actor married Kiran Rao in 2005 and the couple has a son Azad who was born in 2011.
