In Delhi the rich brats have this weird desire to hire Private Bodyguards and mind you, these guys are least likely to need one. It is a kind of ‘status symbol’ for nouveau riche and the the wannabe kinds. The worst part is, these wannabes love to flaunt these safari-suit clad, walkie-talkie carrying security guys and take them along every where and even insist that they be allowed inside a nightclub or a bar. On the contrary I have seen Rahul Gandhi making it a point that non of his SPG personnel walk-in with him at a club or a restaurant even when he has a genuine security threat. This is what is called ‘class’.
The newest wannabe flaunting bodyguards is none other than Arjun Prasad, better known as stylist Pernia Qureshi’s husband and Moin Qureshi’s ‘Ghar Jamai‘. I spotted him (minus Pernia) at Aqueel’s club – Hype with couple of safari-suit clad bodyguards hovering around him wherever he loitered. It was at Hype where Arjun Prasad misbehaved with Robert Vadra blabbering, “I want this guy off my table”, pointing out at Rob. But sadly it was Pernia and Arjun who were not only taken off the table but were ousted from the club.
So dear Arjun, who are you scared of? What prompted the need of Bodyguards? Or is it the case of creating an impression that you are somebody important? Come on dude, these tactics don’t work no more!
