The Punjabi sensation will be seen promoting the film along with Farhan Akhtar in his home town Chandigarh. The makers of ‘Lucknow Central’ will be showing the film to the family of Gippy Grewal along with Milkha Singh and his family.

‘Lucknow Central’ exhibits the tale of a group of inmates who form a music band in order to escape the jail. The film thrives on ambition, passion, friendship, and determination and is based on a real life story.

The trailer of the film has added to the anticipation of the films. The songs ‘Kaavaan Kaavaan’, ‘Meer-e-Kaarwaan’, ‘Teen Kabootar’ and ‘Rangdaari’ have furthered the narrative of the film giving insights into the lives of the characters.
