Lucknow could very well be Kriti Sanon’s second home right now. The actress has been spending time in the city of nawabs for Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s Bareilly Ki Barfi. Even before the shoot could be wrapped up, the city is on the radar again as she prepares to shoot for her next film, Lucknow Central. The film is a comedy, helmed by debutant director Ranjit Tiwari.

About her second Lucknowi stint Kriti says, “I took on this film because it offers me a chance to play a character I haven’t played before. Though I've played small-town girls before in my Hindi debut Heropanti and now in Bareilly Ki Barfi, Lucknow Central is a completely new character for me. And I also get to work with Farhan Akhtar for the first time.”

 

As for Farhan, he had other incentives. “Lucknow Central is the only acting assignment I’ve accepted for now after Rock On 2.Why did I choose this and not something else It’s set in Lucknow, a city I haven’t shot in before. I specially look forward to exploring the legendary cuisine of the city.”
