With rumours aplenty surrounding the narrative of ‘Lucknow Central’ being similar to Yash Raj Films’ ‘Qaidi Band’, it seems the release date of the former’s film is set for a change.
The two films are rumoured to be based on a group of prisoners, who form a musical band and escape prison. With ‘Qaidi Band’ due out 25th August, ‘Lucknow Central’ is releasing a month after, which could prove detrimental in its business. This could be the reason why the makers of ‘Lucknow Central’ are planning to release their film before ‘Qaidi Band’.
A source told DNA India, “Farhan’s film was written, shot and the release was planned months ago. Qaidi Band jumped into the scene all of a sudden, and was completed in record time. It’s almost as if the quickie was planned to pre-empt Lucknow Central and steal its thunder.”
