A bodyguard's job is to keep the client safe and happy. Sounds pretty achievable! But is it really so?? *Wondering*
Ever fantasized of being a tuff bodyguard, standing, hand-folded beside your favorite and much-coveted celebrity (be it Deepika Padukone or Salman Khan for that matter)? These confessions will surely make your mind clear on pursuing this duty as your career!
Well, to your disappointment, this job is not as glamorous as it seems! Read on to hear dreary confessions from an anonymous celebrity bodyguard.
Yes, if you're quite comfy and friendly with your client, chances are, they may recommend you to their other celebrity friends
Dude, forget that you have any family or friends! Coz, celebrities expect you to live according to "their" time. You'll get to eat when they eat, sleep when they sleep and rest even when they rejoice! Ready?!
Well, this is the flip-side of the job, you get to travel loads, provided you're serving an eminent celebrity. I like this.*Excitement*
But, let me warn you, you'll hardly be notified for travelling halfway around the world.
There is a thin hairline difference between a "Bodyguard" and a "Buddyguard", you cannot have a friend-like relation with your client. Being extra friendly is gonna be damaging for you only! You may be asked to walk their dog or even pick up their girlfriend's kids! It can get as annoying as this as well. So, Beware!
All they care about is themselves, and their needs! They simply forget that even you have a life and a family. Yeah, Diva demands can come from anyone!
A lot of times, you will have to be the buffer between them and the public. Plus it can be also them and the Law. Are you ready for it?
We fall down, but we get up. But if a CELEB slips, stumbles and spills! Enough said for you understand!
Being highly active on the social media and real-time sharing of location, photos and videos have increased the problems for bodyguards. Sympathy!
Celebrities are the toughest to manage. They can't be relied upon! They can be both, predictable and unpredictable.
All the best to those who look forward to taking up Celebrity Management!
