While the rest of us spent thousands to catch a glimpse of international pop star Justin Bieber, one man had the best seat in the house, and he even got paid for it.

Salman Khan’s bodyguard Shera was assigned the responsibility of providing security for Justin Bieber during his stay in India. The pop star performed to a crowd of 45,000 at Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium on May 10 as part of his Purpose World Tour.

Speaking with MensXP, Shera shared some inside information on what it was like being with Bieber.

“I took him to see the Gateway of India, we went for a walk, he wanted to stop for a coffee; and I even took him to Shivaji Park where he played some football with the kids,” Shera, who was with Bieber “24/7”, says.

“He loves spending time with kids and so that’s what he did,” Shera revealed. “He is a boy, just like every other boy, He wants his personal space. He wants to be left alone. He wants to do his own thing. In short, he just wants to live his life.”

“One night,” Shera says, “I took him to see Mumbai, he (Justin) told me, ‘I like travelling like this’.”

Asked how he got the gig, Shera said, “I got the call from White Fox about two months ago when they asked me to send in my portfolio. They thought I could handle it.”

But even after providing security for stars like Slash, Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Paris Hilton and Jackie Chan, it’s only Salman Khan for Shera. “I honestly don’t know what I would have been if not Salman Khan’s personal bodyguard. I would have been someone who had a small security agency… I don’t know. I only have Salman Khan to thank for all that I have today. I owe it all to the man I call Maalik”.
