Emraan Hashmi, who will co-produce and star in Cheat India -- a film on education scams in India -- is excited about the project. "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," says the actor.
Emraan has joined hands with Bhushan Kumar's T-Series and Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg's Ellipsis Entertainment to produce the film, to be directed by Soumik Sen. "I am looking forward to working with some formidable partners. Soumik is an amazing storyteller," he adds.
On Twitter, Emraan described the film as "a compelling, edge-of-the-seat drama inspired by real incidents in the Indian education system."
The director Sen says, "This film is for every Indian student who is under pressure to excel in a competitive environment. Today's youth will hugely relate to Cheat India."
Kumar believes the film will reflect the new-age appetite for compelling content rooted in realism.
"The story of Cheat India will entertain and uplift, and we're delighted to be bringing it to life," Garg and Kasbekar jointly said.
The film will release worldwide in February of next year.
