Kaun Banega Crorepati season 13 is set to debut on Sony TV soon, with the suave Amitabh Bachchan hosting it once more. “The distance between you and your dreams is all about trying,” Bachchan said in a promo video. “Get ready to fulfil all your dreams and pick up your phone, as KBC 13 registrations are set to begin from May 10.” The show, launched 21 years ago, had taken Indians by storm, and played a big role in reviving the fortunes of Star India, which aired it initially.

Amitabh Bachchan and Neena Gupta on Monday started work on their upcoming film Goodbye, a week after the Maharashtra government allowed the film and TV industry to restart their production activities with COVID-19 protocols.

Shooting on Goodbye, backed by Balaji Telefilms, came to a halt due to the second wave of the pandemic in April.

According to a source close to the production banner, the actors resumed work on Goodbye, which also features south star Rashmika Mandanna.

Bachchan took to Instagram and posted a selfie, wearing a mask. "Seven AM... Driving to work... First day shooting after lockdown 2.0 on with the Pangolin mask.. and the manifestation: ''every day in ever way things will get better and better and better''," he wrote.

Gupta shared a video on Instagram that saw her entering her vanity van.

"Back to shoot," she captioned the post.

As part of the unlock measures issued by the state government on June 5, the entertainment industry has been allowed to begin shoot with time limit of 5 pm in a bio bubble amid all the necessary COVID-19 safety rules.

Bachchan had earlier informed his fans through his blog that the entire crew of Goodbye had been vaccinated and extreme precautions were being taken by the team.

The film is also produced by Reliance Entertainment.
