Salman Khan plays Kareena Kapoor’s character Divya’s Bodyguard in the film. Since her life is under threat his job is to save her and protect her.
The makers of Bodyguard are taking the concept of the ‘Bodyguard’ to every town and city that Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor travel to. Citizens of those cities will be chosen as their Bodyguard and will get to protect them throughout the day that they are there.
Says source: “We want people to experience the life of a bodyguard. The selected person will be like a shadow to Salman or Kareena in each city they travel to, and will get an intimate glance into the world of glamour and stardom. For a lay person, this will be a great opportunity to spend time with Salman or Kareena the whole day.”
Atul Agnihotri, the producer of Bodyguard confirms: “We are traveling to around 15 cities in one week. Both Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor individually will be traveling and promoting the film. Every city they will have a local bodyguard who will take the role of being their ‘personal bodyguard’ for the day. As a concept it is an extremely enriching experience.”
Bodyguard is this season’s biggest and most anticipated film, releasing on the very long weekend of Eid and Ganpati on 31 August, 2011, in selected cinemas worldwide.
