Farhan Akhtar had earlier released the first look of Ranjit Tiwari's directorial debut Lucknow Central on Twitter. Following suit is Deepak Dobriyal, who also took to Twitter to reveal his character in the film. Dobriyal, who is most famous for his memorable character Pappi from Tanu Weds Manu, will play Victor Chattopadhyay. Here's the actor's tweet:


Just like Akhtar, Dobriyal, too, will play a prisoner, as reported by News 18. Although not much has been revealed about his character, from the trailer, it looks like Dobriyal will play Akhtar's partner-in-crime.

Lucknow Central is a film about jailbreak involving Akhtar, who plays a simpleton in the film. Going by his first look, he looks like just another boy from a small town, trying to make it big. The trailer of the film, which was released shortly after the first look, gave us an insight into the characters and their stories.


Akhtar's character wants to start his own music band in the film, his crude demeanour making the irony too obvious to miss. Whatever turn the story might take, watching the two multifaceted actors together would certainly amplify the whole experience.

Lucknow Central also stars Diana Penty, Gippy Grewal, Ronit Roy, Deepak Dobriyal and Rajesh Sharma. It is produced by Nikkhil Advani's Emmay Entertainment and is slated to release on 15 September.
