Deepika Padukone has been treating us with her updates on Instagram amid lockdown. Every now and then, the beauty shares her watchlist. Not just that, her PDA with Ranveer Singh cannot be missed out on. But what we have today is about her bodyguard Jalal. Want to know his salary? Don’t scroll if you’re weak-hearted!
For the unversed, Jalal has been working with the ’83 actress for years now. From accompanying DP during events to film shoots and promotions, he’s everywhere. In fact, when a picture of Deepika Padukone and Vin Diesel went viral, the bodyguard could be seen in the back too. That isn’t the first time though. Lucky him, yea, exactly our thought!
Albeit, the protection comes at a hefty price. If rumours are to be believed, Deepika Padukone used to pay Jalal an annual salary of 80 lakhs, back in 2017. If we get into the breakup, that makes it approximately 6.66 lakhs a month. That’s the kind of money even most employees even in the highest hierarchy at their companies don’t earn.
And that’s not it. With 2020, the salary must have further witnessed an upward trend. Several reports suggest that Jalal by now is earning over 1 crore annually. We’re totally reconsidering our profession now, how about you?
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone was last seen in Chhapaak. The film was directed by Meghna Gulzar, and also starred Vikrant Massey in lead. Based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, Chhapaak was a failure at the box office.
On the work front, DP will be next seen in ’83. It will mark Deepika & husband Ranveer Singh’s first collaboration post marriage. While Ranveer will be seen as Kapil Dev, the actress will play his wife Romi Dev.
Apart from ’83, Deepika Padukone also has Shakun Batra’s next. She will be seen alongside Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday.
