A couple of minutes later, the man rises to his feet. He has somewhere else to be and is satisfied with the way things are playing out at No. 75 Nargis Dutt Road. He bids goodbye to the director and two executive producers and heads out. As he exits through the back door of the house and makes his way towards the compound’s gate, he walks past a pair of set electricians. They glance at him as he passes by.
For a moment nothing happens. Then their eyes narrow as realization begins to dawn. The man simply continues to hurry away, clearly still trying his best not to be noticed. The electricians stare after him even as his figure recedes into the darkness of the coming night.
The two electricians look at each other. Finally, one of them says to the other, ‘Woh A.R. Rahman tha kya?’
