Amitabh Bachchan’s police bodyguard Jitendra Shinde hit headlines after it was reported that he earned a whopping income of Rs 1.5 crore annually . He is a head constable with the Mumbai police and was assigned to protect Big B.

Jitendra Shinde has been often spotted with Amitabh Bachchan at several public outings and events.
