authenticated session downloads auth_basic protected php files

OK, I think my case is much simpler. Having 

  location = /something.php {
    auth_basic "Restricted";
    auth_basic_user_file ...;  


location ~ \.php$ {
	fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
	fastcgi_pass unix:/home/kek/http/private/php.socket;
	include fastcgi_params;
	try_files $uri =404;

Stops at the first step. Is there any way to password protect a single php
file AND keep parsing it as php? Or should I copy and paste those lines into
the first one?
