If you’ve seen Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu’s new blockbuster Bharath Ane Nenu, you couldn’t have missed the solid presence of the hero’s security guard Mukhtar (played by Mukhtar Khan) who quietly shadows his boss to every place, no matter how dangerous the situation, and even advises his boss on sticky situations that require instant remedy.
This is exactly the relationship that Salman Khan shares with his security guard Shera (real name Gurmeet Singh). The quiet shadow-like figure which never moves away from his lord and master, has been a part of Salman’s life for 30 years. He is so uncannily like Mahesh Babu’s Mukhtar in Bharath Ane Nenu. Interestingly Salman is also playing a character named Bharat in a film of that title being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Mahesh Babu and Salman Khan have a similar volume of fan base.
