The decision of downgrading the security was taken after the annual meet of analysing threat perception to the celebrities. Now, these two superstars will be provided with only two armed constables instead of the escort vehicle with four armed constables that shadowed them so far.

Amitabh Bachchan, Dilip Kumar and singer Lata Mangeshkar are the only celebrities that will retain the police security they have had so far.

Also, security given to 25 Bollywood celebrities has been withdrawn completely including directors Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani and Farah Khan.
