March 24, 2018

The Murder, Gangster and Baadshaho star- Emraan Hashmi is celebrating is 39th birthday today. However, he gave a gift to all his fans a day before that. The popular production company T-Series made an announcement that Emraan Hashmi has signed the agreement for his first home production ‘Cheat India’. While the project was announced a few weeks back, the project is now on the floor.

T-Series took to its official Twitter account and posted a pic of Emraan Hashmi, T-Series honcho Bhushan Kumar, Ellipsis Entertainment’s Atul Kasbekar and director Soumik Sen, who has previously directed Gulab Gang. The picture captioned, “On the eve of his birthday, @emraanhashmi signed the agreement for his FIRST recently announced home production, “CHEAT INDIA”, with @TSeries and @EllipsisEntt. Shooting starts in July 2018 and the release has been slated for January 25, 2019. #CheatIndia”.

The movie Cheat India is based on the various discrepancies in the education system. Emraan announced a few weeks back on his Instagram by posting a pic with a caption that read, “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 filmography. Thank you for all your love and mark February 2019 in your calendar!”
