After Amitabh obliged, Rajkummar said, “In my first film Rann, I did a three-second role in the film. I really wanted to do a scene with you, but I didn’t get the chance. So I thought instead of three seconds, I’ll get to share the screen with you for five seconds.”

Amitabh burst out laughing and Kriti asked Rajkummar, "So this is the movie you were talking about?" She then continued addressing Amitabh, "Sir, he has said that you've asked him to call you AB ji." Rajkummar responded, "Sir has been my co-actor so what if he doesn't remember that I was in the film?"

Amitabh Bachchan said, “So what? AB is my name what else.” Kriti said, "No sir" and they all burst out laughing. Amitabh then said that he didn't know about it as he took them towards the hot seat.

In Rann (2010), Rajkummar essayed the role of a newsreader. Amitabh played the character of Vijay Harshwardhan Malik, the CEO of a struggling news channel.

In the upcoming episode, Kriti Sanon will also be seen getting down on one knee and confessing her love for Amitabh. As Kriti kneeled on the floor, Amitabh got up from his seat danced with her.
