New Delhi: Bollywood is all set to offer two genres - a jail drama and a comedy this Friday. First up is Kangana Ranaut's Simran. Though, Kangana promoted the film in high spirits, as some have noted, it still got side-lined because of Kangana's explosive interviews, in the past few days. In Simran, Kangana Ranaut will be seen portraying the role of Praful Patel, a Gujarati chokri, who lives in New York and is a divorcee. Kangana is seen as a confident and happy-go-lucky woman in the film, who is also a shoplifter and is addicted to gambling. Watch the trailer of Simran here:

The other big release on Friday is Lucknow Central, directed by Ranjit Tiwari and starring Farhan Akhtar in the lead role. The movie is Farhan's much-awaited film, which is set against the backdrop of a jail and features him as a prisoner, who forms a music band along with some other inmates. The film is inspired by the story of convicts sentenced to life imprisonment. Of Lucknow Central, Farhan Akhtar earlier told IANS: "When I heard the story, I was amazed by it. The fact that these guys go out and perform, have a proper booking counter now, blew me away. They leave the jail, go out and perform and come back. It is amazing."
Lucknow Central - produced by Nikkhil Advani, also features Diana Penty, as a confident NGO worker in the film.
