Farhan Akhtar is the lead actor of the film. He plays a prisoner in the film and the story revolves around the theme of music in the inmates' lives.
Salim Khan was one of the celebrities seen at the screening. He is still known for the successful partnership with Farhan's father Javed Akhtar, in writing some of the biggest blockbusters like 'Sholay' among others.
Helen, Salim Khan's wife and yesteryear diva, who acted in several of those films, was also spotted along with him. Though she has not acted in films of late, Helen was seen in a few advertisements.
Prem Chopra was one of the other veteran actors seen at the screening. Even at the age of 81, Chopra still manages to act in films once in a while.
Considering the theme of prisons in the film, the event was designed according to it as we see Diana Penty standing ahead of one such installation. The actress plays an NGO worker in the film.
Ravi Kishan is also one of the main members of the cast of the film. Despite primarily being known as a Bhojpuri star, he has acted in several Hindi films over the years.
Nikkhi Advani poses with Mini Mathur at the event. He is one of the producers of the film and his former assistant director Ranjit Tiwari has helmed 'Lucknow Central.'
Nishikant Kamat, who is set to direct Farhan Akhtar and Sanjay Dutt in a film together, was also snapped. That film will be produced by his 'Drishyam' actor Ajay Devgn.
