Cast Of ‘Lucknow Central’ Met The Original Band Which Inspires The Film

Updated on 18 January, 2018 at 12:17 pm By

The upcoming Bollywood movie “Lucknow Central” is based on a true story of a band formed by the inmates of Lucknow Central jail. The band named ‘Healing Hearts’ was formed in the Adarsh Jail wing of Lucknow Central jail consisting of 12 men who are sentenced to life imprisonment. The band used to play hit Bollywood numbers at various private functions, including weddings and baraats.

The band was the brainchild of VK Jain, the senior superintendent of Lucknow Central jail, as a part of qaidi reforms in 2007.

Just like in the film, a contest was held in the jail for which funds were released. With the arrangement of fifteen instruments, few volunteers came forward to participate in the contest. An inmate who hailed from a musically inclined family provided leadership and subsequently the band won the contest. The win further opened doors to opportunities for the band to perform at private parties.

The cast of “Lucknow Central”, on their visit to Lucknow recently, visited the band which served as an inspiration for the film.

 



“Lucknow Central” exhibits the tale of a group of inmates that form a music band in order to escape the jail. The film thrives on ambition, passion, friendship, and determination.

The ensemble cast of Farhan Akhtar, Gippy Grewal, Ronit Roy, Deepak Dobriyal, Diana Penty, Rajesh Sharma and Inaam-ul-Haq has piqued the interest of the audience.

The film also has Ravi Kishan and Manoj Tiwari making special appearances in the film.

The trailer of the film has intrigued the audience to witness the intense drama that the film would divulge. The songs ‘Kaavaan Kaavaan‘, ‘Meer-e-Kaarwaan‘, ‘Teen Kabootar‘ and ‘Rangdaari‘ provide further insights into the lives of the characters of the film.
