Farhan Akhtar took to Twitter to introduce the audience to the strict and straightforward co star Gayatri Kashyap aka Diana Penty from his upcoming film ‘Lucknow Central‘.
The film stars Farhan Akhtar playing the role of an aspiring singer Kishen Mohan Girhotra whose life turns upside down when he gets wrongly charged with a murder, and is sent to Lucknow Central jail.
Diana Penty plays the role of Gayatri Kashyap, who is an NGO activist and the catalyst that helps the Lucknow Central jail members to escape.

The image described Gayatri Kashyap as headstrong, adamant and straightforward, which is pretty evident in the video.
