In their bid to be mentally positive, the unit has adopted necessary precautions on the Film City set. Sheshkumar says that the control rooms have been modified to include glass partitions. Thus ensuring that the crew members maintain physical distancing. The unit hands are provided with PPE suits, and their temperature and oxygen readings are constantly monitored. Bachchan enters and exits the set from a special passage made solely for him.

On Live audience on the KBC 12 Sets
For the first time since its inception, the show — which airs on September 28 — does not have a live audience. With the audience missing, contestants no longer have the lifeline of an audience poll. It has been replaced with video-call a friend, in addition to the existing lifelines. “[Upon selection] contestants have to undergo a COVID-19 test, after which they are put in quarantine. They are tested again before the shoot. We have restricted the number of people who can accompany each contestant to one,” adds Sheshkumar.
