Why Cheat India
Inspired by true events and facts and coming from the makers of ‘Tumhari Sulu’, ‘Neerja’ and ‘Raid’, the forthcoming Cheat India is out to bare the malpractices in India’s education system. Hashmi had stated in an interview that the film was a first-of-its-kind for him, besides being topical and relevant for students and parents. Its controversial tagline, ‘Nakal Mein Hi Akal Hai’, clearly points towards the rampant malpractices in the country’s financially lucrative education sector. The film debuts the talented Shreya Dhanwanthary and features more than forty theatre actors cast after extensive auditioning.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar’s Ellipsis Entertainment, and Emraan Hashmi Films, Cheat Indiais due for a world release on January 25, 2019.
