New Delhi: Amitabh Bachchan resumed shooting for ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 14’ on Thursday. Big B resumed the shooting after completing the mandatory Covid-19 quarantine. He tested positive for Covid-19 on August 23.
According to a report in Indian Express, the megastar wanted to return soon to not let the show get affected. “While he had completed the seven-day quarantine, we were waiting for his negative report. As soon as that came in, we decided to get back to work. He himself had been wanting to get into the action mode soon, and we couldn’t have been happier to have him back. While the team takes utmost precaution on set, we have made the protocols a little stricter,” Indian Express quoted a source as saying.
Amitabh took to his blog on Wednesday night and shared that his nine days in isolation got over and that he has tested negative. “Back at work .. your prayers gratitude .. negative last night .. and 9 days isolation over .. mandatory is 7 days,” he wrote on his blog. The thespian paid gratitude to his fans, whom he fondly calls his extended family or EF. “My love as ever to all .. you are kind and concerned throughout .. the family Ef so full of care …. have only my folded hands for you.” It was on August 24, when Amitabh shared that he tested positive for Covid. He had tweeted: “I have just tested CoViD positive .. all those that have been in my vicinity and around me, please get yourself checked and tested also.” Big B, who will next be seen on the big screen in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra – Part One: Shiva’, ‘Uunchai’, ‘Goodbye’ and the much-awaited ‘Adi Purush’ with Telugu star Prabhas, had earlier tested positive in July 2020 and isolated himself in Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital.
