At the virtual press conference of Bigg Boss 14, Salman Khan had spoken about his apprehensions of resuming work and had said, "Yes, I was apprehensive to shoot the show because there is a newborn in the house. My sister Arpita and Aayush's daughter Aayat my niece and then there are my parents and Helen aunty. There are also other senior citizens in the family and friends.

Elaborating on the scare of transferring the virus to his family, Salman Khan had continued, "Apne liye darr nahi lagta jitna apne waalon ke liye lagta hai. If you are staying away and then returning home and hugging your mother and by mistake, you transfer the virus then it gets scary. I know they will survive but the discomfort of 15 days and health issues that they will have to go through that is scary. You can't fight an enemy whom you can't see. The coronavirus pandemic has shut down the entire world."
Salman Khan had also revealed that moving to his Panvel farmhouse during the lockdown was stressful for him. The actor had said, "Like everyone else even I was playing Bigg Boss in my house and have not stepped out of my house during the last six months. Today is the first time that I am shooting. Whatever little bit of social media post I had to do I did from my farmhouse. I was at the farm. In Mumbai, I live on the first floor and my parents stay on the ground floor so just to be safe I stayed at my farm. We had gone to Panvel, my farmhouse before the lockdown and got stuck there. Thank God it's a huge space there which my father had bought some 30 years ago and I am lucky that it is now coming to use. By the grace of God, I was there and even there we had the pressure of work not resuming. It was quite stressful."
