Lucknow Central box office collection prediction: The versatile Farhan Akhtar is all set to hit the screen with his upcoming movie Lucknow Central which releases on September 15. Farhan is back almost a year after the release of Rock On sequel which did mediocre business at the box office. Lucknow Central movie is something to look out for this weekend since it boasts a talented ensemble cast consisting of Dipak Dobriyal, Ronit Roy and Diana Penty. The movie is directed by Ranjit Tiwari who has films like D Day and Katti Batti to his name. What is evident from the trailer is that the movie promises a compelling watch given the fresh storyline it is based upon.
This Farhan Akhtar starrer is likely to open to a collection of about Rs 5 crore. The movie is set in the backdrop of prison hence the name ‘Lucknow Central’. The story revolves around the life of five characters who have been convicted of crimes they have not committed and have now decided to break free from the jail by performing as a band. The film also marks the third project of Cocktail actress Diana Penty who will be seen playing Farhan’s love interest in the flick.
However, Lucknow Central is going to face tough competition from Kangana Ranaut starrer Simran which releases on the same day. Considering the fact that Kangana has kept herself in the news virtually on a daily basis, her movie should have a big edge over the Akhtar starrer. Both the films are important for their respective actors and will only perform well if they manage good word of mouth reviews.
