Tyson’s entourage is Nadiadwala's headache

Producer Firoz Nadiadwala seems to be in the boxing ring already, fighting to ensure that the former world champion boxer, Mike Tyson, comes to India for a brief appearance in his FOOL N FINAL.

Apparently, signing Tyson for his film, was a lot easier than bringing him here. Tyson is facing a number of legal cases and creditors in US and just getting him to travel to India involves obtaining various permissions from the American government.

The boxer travels with his own security guard, a solicitor and an interpreter, and all of them have to be provided 5-star treatment. Merely booking a suit for Tyson is not enough. He needs the entire floor to be reserved for his entourage. Coming to Tyson?s eating preferences, he just cannot handle spicy food, so he is also getting his cook along with him!

Firoz may think that he has asked for more trouble than he can handle by getting Tyson here, so he has assembled a contingent of 20 security guards to keep Tyson protected. Which is all very well, except for a minor problem. Who will protect his security guards from Mike Tyson?
