Intermission, flashed across the silver screen at the crucial moment when the hero, the proclaimed God of the action, Rajiv Kumar, zoomed past on the motorbike with its front tyre in the air, fire blazing out of the rear wheel, putting a brake on the fast pacing, decisive turn of the much-anticipated, big-budget, action-thriller.

The audience erupted in thunderous applause and a shower of whistles in delightful surprise as the spotlight turned to Rajiv Kumar who waved and sent flying kisses at the audience of the first day first show of his movie, from the gallery.

Witnessing the euphoria, his body double felt a pinch in his heart while he stood faceless in the dark of the same cinema hall, lost in the sea of audience.
