Ace actor Emraan Hashmi was last seen in Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho and since than he has not signed any film. Now, Hashmi will be seen in T series and Ellipsis entertainemt’s next co production ‘Cheat India’. T series and Ellipsis entertainment have partnered before in Vidya Balan starrer Tumhari Sulu and the film was a sleeper hit. Cheat India will tackle the loopholes and corruption in Indian education system which is burdened upon students who are opting for higher studies. Coaching classes have come out to be one of the biggest education scams and Cheat India will cover that in the broadcast.
Emraan’s Baadshaho was also produced by T series though film turned out to be an unsuccessful adventure because it did not have a climax. Emraan’s comic performance was highly appreciated by the audience as the film tanked. Emraan is not known for doing realistic cinema except Shanghai which was directed by Dibakar Banerjee. Emraan is known for his highly dramatic musical films which dabble into insanity of human emotions but in a fictional scenario so it would be interesting to see him combating this zone with his immeasurable talent.
Emraan has not signed or announced any other film than this so he will keep his undivided attention on the project. Direction of the film is being helmed by Soumik Sen, who has previously directed a catastrophic failure by the name of Gulaab Gang starring Madhuri Dixit in the lead role. Shooting of the film will start in sometime as release date is somewhere in the February of 2019. Emraan has never worked with Soumik before hence their first time collaboration will be interesting to see. Cheat India is essentially a medium budget film and rest of the star cast including female protagonist is yet to be finalized. Trailer and songs of the film will be released many moths from now.
