Arun Sheshkumar informs us that Big B’s greeting-style too has changed this season. Say he, “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.” Now we can’t wait to see that. He also reveals that the senior actor interacts with unit members over a mike and checks the monitor through the glass partition. So the human contact is kept at its minimum during the shoot, keeping everyone’s safety in mind.
