About shooting with the superstar during the pandemic, KBC director Arun Sheshkumar told mid-day, "Since a handshake is discouraged in the prevailing situation, Mr Bachchan has devised an elbow bump. He does it in a cute manner; fans will surely imitate him."

Amitabh Bachchan was recently roped in by The Reserve Bank of India for its customer awareness campaign to prevent account holders from being duped by fraudsters. As part of the initiative, Big B posted a message on the regulator's social media handle. "The cost of awareness is hardly a penny, but ignorance can cost you hard-earned money."
