Some distance away, in the middle of a vast expanse of sward, a Mercedes is parked, doors open. A besuited Akshay Kumar reclines in the driver's seat, listening intently to a Producer Who Shall Not be Named, as he narrates his dream project—about a stuntman. Narration done, Akshay switches on the car's music system. The opening strains of shabad gurbani kirtan Nirgun Raakh Liya, sung by Raghubir Singh Diwana and Akshay himself, flood the English countryside. He lies back, eyes closed, intoning the words of the hymn under his breath.

The superstar is at peace.
