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.”
The film made headlines for its massive sets at the Film City studio in Goregaon. “Nikhil Advani (producer) said he wants to make the jail look huge and scary.The makers kick started with the layout, drawings and fashioned a few 3D models,” Amit Ray (the man behind the vast sets) told a leading daily.
Lucknow Central has been in news ever since its inception. Farhan has also shot for rain sequence for the film. A source revealed to a leading daily, “Farhan and his co-stars shot for a rain sequence amidst tight security. Water tankers had been hired for the most part of the day. It took over a month to erect the set which led to a slight delay in the film’s schedule, which was to take off last October initially. Gippy Grewal is also a part of the cast.”
