A new promo has been released by the channel, wherein Abhishek was seen revealing to the comedian-host of the show that Ajay gave him an earful about not being careful during the time infection was widespread. Following which, the actor said that he thought back and realised he had met him 5-6 days before being tested positive for Covid-19.

They were even hospital following the diagnosis.
Abhishek in a more serious tone then said, “He (Ajay) was the first to call me. He said, ‘What is this? What is going on? How has this happened to you?’ Then I realised that five or six days before that, he’d come to meet me.”
Abhishek Bachchan then also talked about his upcoming film The Big Bull, which is based on Harshad Mehta, was first offered to Ajay Devgn. “Bol Bachchan, The Big Bull and two-three other projects that came to him (Ajay) first.

Previously, during an interview with Hindustan Times, Abhishek Bachchan spoke about his experience of contracting Covid-19 from July to August 2020. He said, “I was more filled with concern for my family than anything else. My father, wife and daughter got it too, thankfully the rest of the family did not. Obviously, you’re concerned about your loved ones and want them to be alright. There’s little that you can do. I’ve to thank all the doctors and nurses who cared and worked so hard. I never actually had time to sit and contemplate. At that time, energies and concentration is all on your loved ones. After recuperating, I was back to work.”
