Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut to be guarded by CRPF commandos
Kangana Ranaut announced her return to Mumbai on September 9, a few days back despite receiving backlash from people over her ‘POK’ comment on the city. Post that, Himachal Pradesh’s CM Jairam Thakur stated on Sunday that the state government would provide security to the actress during her return to the city.
She was given the Y-plus security cover by the Union Home Ministry, is the first Bollywood star to be guarded by a posse of elite commandos of the CRPF, officials said.
The CRPF, the country’s largest paramilitary force, has been providing security to about 60 dignitaries and high-profile persons, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and her children Rahul and Priyanka.
That means Kangana will be guarded by elite commandos from the CRPF. However, it is still not clear concerning who will be paying for the same. For the unversed, those individuals who get CRPF security usually pay for it.
However, it is still not known in the case of the actress whether or not she will have to pay for the same. Now, under the Y-plus securities, around 10-11 commandos will guard Kangana who will be working in shifts.
Not only that, but the actress will also have 2-3 armed Personal Security Officers (PSO) whenever she is on the move. On the other hand, the rest of them will secure her residence. An official has stated that the personnel will get access control to all the people coming to and from Kangana’s residence.
Reportedly, she is likely to get an escort vehicle for her security team. Meanwhile, Himachal’s CM has also welcomed the decision of providing central security to the actress.
