After much speculations discussions and changes, Nikhil Advani’s ambitious film Lucknow Central recently went on floor with Farhan Akhtar in the lead. Adding to the star cast will be some renowned names from the Bhojpuri film industry and those are none other than Manoj Tiwari and Ravi Kishen. From what we hear, the two will have a small yet significant role in the film.
Lucknow Central is set against the backdrop of a jail, where Farhan plays the role of a prisoner, aspiring to be a Bhojpuri singer and is a huge fan of Manoj Tiwari and admires him. Ravi Kishan has already shot his cameo and they shared a good working relationship with each other. The film is currently being shot in Lucknow itself and the cameo with Manoj Tiwari will be shot once they are back in Mumbai.
It was difficult to get both the Bhojpuri superstars for the film together and it is indeed going to be exciting to watch them share screen space with Farhan Akhtar.
Ravi is all praise for Farhan; describing him as a ‘thorough gentleman’ he informs that even when Farhan was not required, he’d hang around to cue them. “His patience and dedication is commendable and my respect for him has increased several folds,” added Ravi.
Producer Nikkhil Advani shares, “We were glad to convince Manoj Tiwari and Ravi Kishan, who are superstars of Bhojpuri cinema, to play interesting cameos in the film and their camaraderie with Farhan is to watch out for.”
Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Emmay Entertainment and Motion Pictures, Lucknow Central is directed by Ranjit Tiwari and is slated to release on September 15.
