No one seems to be interested with the Lucknow Central. Farhan Akhtar has been signed as the lead for the movie. However, troubles are noticed with the main actress. In the beginning Kriti Sanon has been signed for the movie. Heropanti actress has left the movie due to an issue with the dates. Then, the makers have thought of signing Saiyami Kher following to an audition. Some workshops have been arranged for her too.
Now, news has been coming that Saiyami may not be doing the movie anymore. Reasons of opting out Saiyami are still unknown. It is believed after a long search Diana Penty has been finalized. In the movie, you may also see Ronit Roy and Gippy Grewal apart from Farhan Akhtar. The movie is produced by Nikhil Advani. However, it may be directed by Ranjit Tiwari who is the first time in the director’s chair.
Following to sign up of Saiyami, makers have thought that she is not suited for the movie at all. Therefore, they have chosen a replacement. The choice has been Cocktail actress Diana Penty. She is supposed to play a NGO workers character in the movie. It may be the first time when we can observe the chemistry between Diana Penty and Farhan Akhtar on the silver screen.
Sources told us that Lucknow Central is a comedy movie. There is no specific reason behind the back drop of Lucknow. Previously, Ranjit Tiwari has worked with Nikhil as an assistant director. Therefore, Nikhil Advani is confident about the capability of director. Complete support may be given by Nikhil to Ranjit Tiwari.
In the previous movie Happy Bhaag Jayegi, Diana Penty has done a good job. It has been a comedy movie at the same time. Therefore, mettle of Diana in comedy has been tasted already.
