The first look poster sees Farhan Akhtar as a convict who goes by the name Kishan Mohan Girhotra. His new avatar will certainly pique the interest of his fans.
“Sapna! Band banane ka,” this is how the trailer starts with Kishen Mohan Girotra (Farhan Akhtar) explaining his dream of aspiring to become a big singer. Kishen gets allegedly arrested for a crime he has not done or has he? The promo has this thrilling feel to it making us wonder is this the prison escape movie Bollywood is looking for.
Deepak Dobriyal, Rajesh Sharma, Inaam Ul Haq & Rajesh Sharma, as he finds an opportunity to form a band with them. Diana Penty plays a hard-working NGO activist who lends a helping hand to Farhan and the team.
“Lucknow Central”, produced by Nikkhil Advani and directed by Ranjit Tiwari, is about a prisoner who forms a band along with his other jail inmates.
