For the unversed, Shera has previously handled international artists like Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Jackie Chan, Paris Hilton and Justin Bieber during their India visits. So this does not come as a surprise that he has been hired to look after Mike as well.

When Shera was prodded as to who will be with Salman when he handles Mike, he quipped, "I took his permission before taking this responsibility. I work exclusively for him and Bhai is always my first priority," further adding that he was given a go-ahead by the actor since he is shooting for Bigg Boss and not any film. Shera concluded by saying that although Salman and Mike have busy schedules, they will surely catch up if something can be worked out.
