Tseries and Ellipsis entertainment have joined hands to produce ‘Cheat India’ which stars Emraan Hashmi in the lead role. Emraan’s last film ‘Baadshaho’ was with T Series as well hence this tie up has gone stronger now. Cheat India will release on January 25, 2019. Subject matter of this film has much to do with corruption in education system of India. This theme has exactly not been touched upon in the past in Hindi films and certainly not by Emraan who mostly does highly dramatic performances though it could be interesting to see him dabbling the ball in a realistic set up.
There is going to be a clash on republic day next year where Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Super 30’ will also release on the same date and weirdly enough both the films have education system as their primary theme though Super 30 is a biopic but of a mathematician who went sideways from the routine education way and developed a whole new ideology and manner of teaching which helped the underprivileged students to grow and get admission in IIT as it happens to be the premier engineering college in India.
Hrithik is a far bigger star than Emraan as far as box office collections are concerned but he is not doing a heist thriller like Bang Bang which is bound to get an incredible number of audience but his film is very grounded and so is the demeanor of his character. Clash would certainly affect the business of both the films considering the audience will be divided as the tonality of both the films has uncanny similarities. Cheat India is directed by Soumik Sen who is known for his realistic genre of films while Super 30 is directed by Vikas Bahl who is known for making Queen and Shaandar. Plot details and trailer of the film will be released later as shooting has not started yet.
