|Attacking the deep-rooted social ills is doubtless an act of courage, but also fraught with danger. For his security, Bollywood’s noble superstar Aamir Khan has reportedly bought himself a bombproof car.
According to a tabloid report, the 48-year-old superstar has bought a Mercedes Benz S600, which is a customized model to give him security not just against bullets, but even bombs.
“After the first season of Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan received a few threats as he had openly talked against female foeticide, medical malpractices and honour killings in the show. He then decided to purchase this expensive bombproof car,” a source is quoted as saying by Mid-Day.
Reports say it was Aamir Khan’s family that pressed the star to get himself a bombproof car.

Aamir Khan, however, has denied that he’s received any threats. “I have not got any threats. I don’t fear threats. Do not go with the rumours. There is no threat to me,” the actor told PTI.
The special protection car was nonetheless bought ahead of the second season of 'Satyamev Jayate' which went on air on Sunday, March 2. The first episode tackled the issue of rapes. (Audience praise the first episode of 'Satyamev Jayate 2')
Aamir Khan is reported to have shelled out a whopping Rs. 10 crore for the bombproof car. He’s said to be the third person in India to own a bullet proof car, the other two being PM Manmohan Singh and industrialist Mukesh Ambani.
