Bangalore: With a focus on adhering to the government guidelines to maintain safety during the coronavirus pandemic, Zee Kannada continued to provide ardent viewers with non-stop entertainment in the comfort of their homes. The channel aired re-runs of prominent fiction, non-fiction shows, movies and events, including award ceremonies and audio launches to keep the views engaged through this season. Maintaining precautionary measures successfully resulted in allowing channel shooting to resume starting 25th May, continuing to adopt necessary precautions.

The Karnataka government has granted permission to producers of Kannada serial to resume production even as the state firmly remains under lockdown.
