Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan`s real-life bodyguard chose to stay away from a felicitation ceremony organised by filmmakers of the Salman Khan starrer `Bodyguard`.
The film`s lead actress Kareena Kapoor felicitated the bodyguards of actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan for their work and dedicated service to the superstars at an event here last evening.
On the absence of Shah Rukh`s bodyguard at the promotional activity , Kareena said, "I am sure they (makers) would have invited Shah Rukh`s bodyguard also like others. But it seems he (Shah Rukh) might be travelling so his bodyguard would be with him."
However, sources say the rivalry between Shah Rukh and Salman might have led to the former`s bodyguard giving the event a miss.
Salman`s bodyguard Shera was also not present at the event as the actor has gone to the US for a jaw nerve surgery.
