Lucknow Central featuring actors Farhan Akhtar, Diana Penty and Deepak Dobriyal is all set to hit the screens this week and the trailer of the film indicates that the movie is surely going to win many hearts. Lucknow Central revolves around Kishen Mohan played by Farhan, who aspires to become a singer but unfortunately gets convicted for murder and becomes Qaidi no. 1821 in Lucknow Central. Gayatri Kashyap played by Diana is an NGO worker, who helps prisons to form a band. You will be amazed to know that the plot of the film was inspired from many other jails.

The writer of Lucknow Central, Aseem Arora revealed to a leading daily that the story of the film was well researched and was inspired from many jails. The entire team explored the story for almost two years and director Ranjit Tiwari even talked to jail inmates. A music band formed by prisoners was an interesting concept and Aseem revealed that they drew inspiration from Jammu & Kashmir’s Inmates Pipe Band and Tihar Jail's music band, The Flying Souls.

It was quite evident from the trailer that the prisoners form band to escape from the jail but in real life none of the band members did this. Aseem explained that to add drama to the movie, jailbreak part was added which was stimulated from Tihar and Meerut District Jail.

Talking about Diana’s character, Aseem stated that the Nikkhil Advani was very clear about her look and the team drew inputs from Nikkhil’s wife Suparna Gupta, who is also an NGO worker.

 

On a related note, Lucknow Central is slated to release on September 15 and will fight the box office battle with Kangana Ranaut starrer Simran.
