On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan had shot a few advertisements for the upcoming season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, but those were all shot at home. He was due to start shooting the next season soon. His previous film, Gulabo Sitabo, also starring Ayushmann Khurrana, was released digitally on Amazon Prime Video due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Abhishek Bachchan, on the other hand, had been photographed visiting a dubbing studio after the lockdown started easing. His debut web series Breathe: Into the Shadows started streaming on July 10 on Amazon Prime Video.

Amitabh Bachchan had recently shared a photo with his children, Abhishek and Shweta, with the caption that read, "How did they grow up so fast?" The photo showed them as kids in Amitabh Bachchan's arms, and as adults sitting right next to him.

Amitabh had earlier recorded a public service announcement for the government where he requested people to sanitise their hands and keep their surroundings clean. This message was circulated at the start of the coronavirus outbreak.
