A few days ago, Amitabh Bachchan recovered from COVID-19 and now, the 77-year-old actor is back to work. He has started shooting for Kaun Banega Crorepati season 12.

The megastar took to Instagram to inform his fans about it. He posted a picture from the sets and wrote, “.. it’s back to work .. in a sea of blue PPE .. KBC 12 .. started 2000 .. today year 2020 .. 20 years ! Amaze .. that’s a lifetime !!”

In this blog, Big B wrote that there are precautions being taken on the sets. He wrote, “It has begun… the chair, the atmosphere, the KBC 12… started year 2000… today year 2020… unimaginable that the years have passed… that the show has lasted… that the nerves are back… it’s a sea of limited blue on set…quiet…conscious…each delegated work routine…precautions, systems, distanced masks, sanitised and the apprehensions of not just what shall happen to the show but what shall the world look like after this dread vid-19. Getting in front of the cameras again…was it weird, different feel after this long furlough… dunno.”

He further added, “There is a loss of camaraderie… no one speaks unless it’s work related… it’s like a laboratory where some rather deep scientific experiments abound… this was never expected… never the time to see such visuals… but there it is…recognised faces now unrecognisable… and the doubts whether we are in the right place, with the right people… but… we muster up the fears and be on… there is great consideration and care being extended… all precautions carefully worked out and followed… precautions were there earlier too in times of distress… but this time its severe… its personal… this time, they know its fatality, god forbid… and that lingers… the light-heartedness has sealed itself… isolated… do the do and leave.”

Talking about Amitabh Bachchan’s movies, the megastar was last seen in Gulabo Sitabo which had got a direct-to-digital release on Amazon Prime Video. He has films like Chehre, Brahmastra, Jhund, and Uyarndha Manithan (Tamil) in his kitty.
