Many people may not know that actor Ronit Roy also owns a security agency called Ace Security which provides bodyguards for many celebrities. However, the agency had to face losses during the pandemic as they lost many clients. Ronit Roy has said that only actors Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar supported him during those testing times. He even added that he thought about shutting down Ace Security but that he decided to keep his employees on his payroll as they too needed money.
“Post lockdown in March 2020, I decided to shut down my security agency. My wife Neelam and I sat down and realised that there was a lot happening; some worker’s wife was pregnant, and someone’s mother was unwell. I decided to keep them on the roster. As for my clients, the so-called stars, they went away. Only a few, in fact, just two – Mr Bachchan and Akshay Kumar – stood by me in the lockdown and I am very grateful to them,” he told a leading daily.
Ronit Roy also added that when things began looking up, he asked his 110 employees to return for work but about 40 of them declined and said that they did not want to come back from their hometowns, despite Ronit having taken care of their financial needs during the tough time. “I resumed the agency but in such a way that I have nobody on roster now; we have devised some way to pay the staff,” he has now said.
