In a tweet posted on Sunday morning, Big-B appealed to his fans not to come to Jalsa and 'be safe'. He wrote that he won't be coming out to meet them.

In his blog entry from March 14, Bachchan spoke about COVID-19 and how working in isolation is a work of art.
He wrote, "Being held hostage by that great ball of CoVid19 .. coloured in some and in others in the whites of black .. it seeks attention , and mention both .. one would do but no, its the law of the corona .. bear it stare it declare it ensnare it .. but none whatsoever on how to repair it... uncertainties be the landmarked trademark of humanity .. never more entrusted with the weapon that has the prevalence of wiping us all out, does this by meaning mean."
