The filming of Ranjit Tiwari's directorial debut, Lucknow Central, which has Farhan Akhtar play a prisoner who starts a band with his fellow inmates, kicked off on January 10. On Tuesday, Mirror caught a glimpse of the actor shooting in a recreated version of the Lucknow Central jail in Goregaon's Film City.

A source reveals, “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.“

The film also features Diana Penty as the female lead who plays an NGO worker, and Deepak Dobriyal and Manav Vij in significant roles.
