On the eve of his birthday, Emraan Hashmi signed the contracts for his first home production to be co-produced by T-Series and Ellipsis entertainment. This will be the very first time of Emraan producing his own film and it is tiled ‘Cheat India’. Shooting of the film will start in July 2018 and it will release on 25 January 2019. Emraan’s last film by the name of ‘Badshaho’ was also with T-Series co-starring Ajay Devgn but it did not meet the fate of goodness on the box office and in the eyes of audience.
‘Cheat India’ is thematically based on the education system of India and will present a critique on it in a fictionalized story. Emraan is known for making drama/thrillers with immense sequels that could be horror as well but a social message. A content like this has never seen Emraan’s face though his supreme acting abilities were seen wonderfully in Dibakar Banerjee directorial ‘Shanghai’. Emraan was not seen in many movies in last 5 years because child got a cancer and the actor dedicated all his time to his son instead of film sets.
‘Cheat India’ will be clashing with Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Super 30’ on the box office, which is also based on education system of this country. Super 30 is a biopic on Bihar based mathematician who runs a coaching class completely pro-bono for under privileged children who want to become engineer. Every year Anand makes a batch of 30 dedicated students and makes sure that they get admission in premier academic institutions. Both the films have massive stars which guarantee a certain number of audience on the box office with similar genre films on the same day hence they will be eating into each other’s territory. Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Super 30’ is already under production and a good chunk of the film has been shot already.
