We all know that Farhan Akhtar had teamed up with Kriti Sanon, for the film Lucknow Central, which was to tell the story of a band started by jail inmates.

The film was to go on floors by September this year and was going to be produced by Excel Entertainment and directed by Nikhil Advani. But as per the latest rumour in tinsel town, Excel has backed out at the last minute and as a result the film might be shelved.

A source in the industry confirmed the news to SpotboyE.com and said, “Yes, the production house Excel Entertainment had backed out. The reasons for the same are unknown but now Nikhil is left with nowhere to go.”

As of now Farhan Akhtar has his fingers crossed for the film Rock On 2, which also features Shraddha Kapoor. The film is all set to hit the theaters on November 11.
