Three weeks since ‘Rock On 2’ released, Farhan Akthar has already embarked on his next project, a Nikhil Advani production titled ‘Lucknow Central’.
Reported in Deccan Chronicle, the film will also star Kriti Sanon and will be directed by debutant Ranjit Tiwari. Funnily enough Sanon has been in Lucknow busy shooting for her next ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, a Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial. When mentioned to Akthar he chuckles and asks “Oh has she?”, “Good, she can introduce me to some yummy food that Lucknow is famous for. This is my first time in Lucknow, and I’m really looking forward to it.”
For Akthar and his producer-partner Ritesh Sidhwani, both received setbacks with their recent releases, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ (2016) and ‘Rock On 2’ (2016), but this hasn’t made them feel deflated. “We’re currently producing Fukrey 2 and then we go into Reema Kagti’s Gold with Akshay Kumar. Setbacks happen to every production house. Why should we sit back and sulk about it? We’ve always moved at our own pace and rhythm. After we produced Reema’s Talaash, we had a very big break in releases till Zoya’s (Akhtar) Dil Dhadakne Do, since there was so much pre-production work to be done on these films,” said Akthar.
