Ronit Roy is one of the best actors on television, so much that he is touted as the 'Big B of small screen'. He has roles scripted out just for him and a recent example is the one of Dharmraj Mahiyavanshi in Imagine's Bandini.
It's a known fact that the last season of IPL was shifted from home base to South Africa due to security reasons. So this year, as the game is being held in India, efforts were high to make sure security measures taken were optimum. That Ronit's agency was chosen is a big privilege in itself.
However, Ronit is being fortunate in matters money wise too. For a little birdie confides, "Ronit's agency, Ace Security & Protection is getting a massive amount…say of approximately Rs. 200 crore for providing their services for all the 45 days of the third season of IPL. And the Security Agency has been working on their toes, day in and day out. They are indeed doing a great job so far, and this has allowed the players to play their game in a more relaxed manner".
However, Ronit chose to deny this piece of news. "Yes, my agency is providing security support for IPL. But the figure is incorrect. You should get your facts right," he quipped.
Well, if the new teams of Pune and Kochi (joining in the next season of IPL) can be sold for Rs 1702 crore and Rs 1533.33 crore respectively, we just cannot rule out the fact that the security agency, responsible for the lives of all the participants involved in this big daddy of sports, may get a teeny-weeny share of the booty…
