Farhan Akhtar v/s Kangana Ranaut: Lucknow Central To Clash With Simran On September 15

Farhan Akhtar and Kangana Ranaut are all set to clash at theatres across the country on September 15. The two are coming up with their respective releases, Lucknow Central and Simran on the same Friday.

While Hansal Mehta, the maker of Simran, had announced the release date long back, Nikhil Advani, the man behind Lucknow Central, announced the date only a while back.

If we recall, Lucknow Central has had its own share of troubles even before the film went to floors. The film was shelved for the longest time, and finally there came hope in form of Viacom 18 when they joined hands with Nikhil Advani’s Emmay Entertainment as co-producers of the film.

Speaking to a leading daily, Nikhil informed, “We are extremely excited about this project as it’s a very unique concept set against the backdrop of a jail and its inmates. The stellar ensemble cast adds further charm and intrigue to the film and we can’t wait to bring this captivating drama to the viewers.”

In the film, Farhan essays the role of a small town common man and because of unforeseen circumstances lands up in jail. Lucknow Central, which is said to be a comedy drama, features Diana Penty opposite Farhan. The film also has Gippy Grewal, Deepak Dobriyal, Ronit Roy and Rajesh Sharma in pivotal roles.
