Aziz Ansari was spotted while stepping out in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles on Saturday morning.

The 39-year-old performer spent a bit of tine in the shining California sun before heading into a local cade and picking up a few pastries.

The actor’s outing comes not long after his former collaborator Bill Murray was accused of engaging in inappropriate behavior on the set of the suspended dramedy film Being Mortal.

Ansari kept it relatively casual in a flannel shirt and a set of wide-legged navy blue pants during his outing.

The Parks And Recreation actor also accessorized with a stylish pair of sunglasses.

Development on Being Mortal was initially announced this past February, when it was revealed that the performer would make his feature directorial debut with the project.

In addition to helming the feature, the actor also wrote its script and served as one of its producers.

The project was based on Atul Gawande’s 2014 book Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End.

The non-fiction book primarily dealt with end-of-life care and suggested that medical professionals should focus on well-being as opposed to survival.

Murray, 71, was also announced to have joined the project when Ansari was announced as its director.

Seth Rogen and Keke Palmer signed on to appear in the movie this past March and April, respectively.

Production on the movie began in March and continued for several weeks before it was announced that filming had halted last month.

At the time, it was noted that the suspension was enacted due to a complaint of inappropriate behavior, although it was reported that Ansari was not the target of the claim.

It was subsequently revealed by Deadline that Murray was the focus of the claim. 

Searchlight Pictures is currently conducting an investigation into the complaint, and production on the feature will remain halted until future steps are decided.

The Ghostbusters star’s role in the project also remains uncertain at this time.

Murray subsequently discussed the suspension during an interview with CNBC, where he explained his actions and noted that Being Mortal’s producers wanted to complete their investigation before continuing with the film.

‘I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way. The company, the movie studio, wanted to do the right thing, so they wanted to check it all out, investigate it,’ he said.

The Garfield voice actor then pointed out that he and the individual who made the complaint were attempting to work things out between them.

‘As of now, we’re talking and we’re trying to make peace with each other. I think that’s where the real issue is, between our peace. We’re both professionals,’ he said.

Murray acknowledged that the common perception of appropriate behavior had also evolved over the years. 

‘You know, what I always thought was funny as a little kid isn’t necessarily the same as what’s funny now. Things change and the times change, so it’s important for me to figure it out,’ he stated.

The Lost In Translation actor expressed that he felt as if the investigation would lead to a positive outcome for all parties involved.

‘We’re talking about it. We’re, I think we’re gonna make peace with it. I’m very optimistic about that,’ he said.

Murray concluded by remarking that he wanted to mend things with the individual who made the complaint and continue working on the movie.

He said: ‘What would make me the happiest would be to, you know, put my boots on and for both of us to go back into work and be able to trust each other.’ 

Intention: Murray concluded by remarking that he wanted to mend things with the individual who made the complaint and continue working on the movie; he is seen with Conan O'Brien earlier this month
