It is learnt that Amitabh Bachchan had been staying at home since the lockdown was announced. But he had recently shot promotional content for the quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati and other projects at his home and hence has contact with the production crew who came to his house. Abhishek, meanwhile, had visited a dubbing studio several times over the past week.
