On the work front, Amitabh’s next on the big screen will be Ayan Mukherji’s Bhramastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Big B was also looking forward to beginning the shoot of his Sony TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati’s 12th season after lockdown. In fact, the actor had even shot for its promo from home. But given the Government restrictions of not allowing actors above 65 years of age to resume shoots, the show was delayed. We too pray for Amitabh’s quick recovery and even quicker return to work!
