The team of Lucknow Central, including, Farhan Akhtar, Diana Penty, Ronit Roy, Ravi Kishan, Deepak Dobriyal, Rajesh Sharma and Inaamulhaq chose to celebrate the 70th year of Independence in a tad bit different style this year.
Yerwada Jail which has housed several convicts now opened its doors to the team of Lucknow Central. In the presence of 4000 inmates at the Yerawada Central Jail in Pune, the team was welcomed with a warm round of applause from the inmates and the police officers.
The jail inmates and police officers were also seen partaking in the cultural extravaganza. The celebrations began with the rendition of the yesteryear Mohammed Rafi song Chahoonga main tujhe sung by the inmate Nitin Arole followed by a foot-tapping version of the Marathi pop sensations Ajay-Atul’s ‘Bring it on’ sung by police officer Prabhakar Mali and Pratibha Ghugre who sang the renowned desh-bhakti number ‘Aye mere watan ke logon’.
Further, Farhan along with music composer, Rochak Kohli of yet another track from the Lucknow Central album, performed LIVE for the inmates. With the audiences rooting for Rock On, the talented actor/singer fulfilled their request by performing on stage alongside two police officers and the inmate NitinArole.
