My production company is delighted to partner with #TSeries (Bhushan Kumar) and #EllipsisEntertainment (Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar) on one of the most engaging and riveting scripts I've read in a long, long time. Our production is called #CheatIndia and it will be directed by Soumik Sen. The edge-of-the-seat drama will take a startling look at the crimes in the Indian education system which has created a parallel ecosystem infested with a mafia of sorts. I am sure that every student and youth will hugely relate to the subject. In an era marked by the success of content alone, I'm excited to be essaying a character which I believe will be a landmark one in my film-ography. Thank you for all your love and mark February 2019 in your calendar!
Talking about the film, Emraan Hashmi said:
“The script and title of Cheat India are supremely powerful. This is among the most engaging and riveting stories I’ve read in a while and I am thrilled to be essaying what I believe will be a landmark role in my filmography. I am also looking forward to working with some formidable partners – Soumik, an amazing storyteller, Ellipsis, the new kids with a pulse on clutter-breaking content and marketing, and T-Series, with whom I share an old association on music and films.”
Today the director Soumik Sen, producers and some of the initial crew members of the keenly awaited Cheat India caught up with the lead actor, Emraan Hashmi, at the production office.
The film marks Emraan’s first home production with Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment, promoted by Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and their partners.
The powerful drama for the Indian youth has been mostly inspired by real crimes in the prevailing education system and is expected to release on January 25, 2019.
