We had earlier reported that Farhan Akhtar will be seen playing a prisoner in Nikkhil Advani's next production titled 'Lucknow Central' to be helmed by Ranjit Tiwari. Now if the latest reports are to be believed then the makers have roped in Kriti Sanon and Angad Bedi for this movie.
Farhan's character starts a band in jail to rediscover pride, self-confidence and a reason to wake up every morning. As per a Mumbai Mirror report Kriti plays an NGO worker who helps the prisoners reconstruct their life in the film.
The tabloid further quoted a source saying, "Kriti's look in the film will be simple and easy to relate to. Farhan's band will have four other members. So far, Angad Bedi and Deepak Dobriyal have been signed and the team is still looking for two other actors to complete the band. Farhan picks out four jail mates and trains them in music while they are all serving out their sentence. Being part of a band in real life too, Farhan was the obvious choice for the part. The others are raw and untrained but with potential and promise. Farhan as their mentor transforms them into better human beings altogether."
The film is slated to hit the shooting floors by year end and will be shot in Lucknow and Mumbai.
