After the success of last year’s ‘Tumhari Sulu’, Ellipsis Entertainment and T-Series have teamed up again for their next ‘Cheat India’.
The film will star Emraan Hashmi, which will also be co-produced by the actor. The edge-of-the-seat drama, largely inspired by real incidents, will be directed by Soumik Sen.
Says Hashmi, “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 film-ography. I am also looking forward to working with some formidable partners – Soumik, an amazing storyteller, Ellipsis, the new kids with a pulse on clutter-breaking content and marketing, and T-Series, with whom I share an old association on music and films.”
Says Sen, “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.”
Says Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, “We are increasingly treading the path of strong creative partnerships, and in line with that, we are excited about co-creating Cheat India, which, we believe, will reflect the new-age appetite for compelling content rooted in realism.”
Remark Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar of Ellipsis Entertainment, “The projects we are developing are incredibly diverse, varied in scope, and speak to the elevated tastes of audiences today. The story of Cheat India will entertain and uplift, and we’re delighted to be bringing it to life.”
‘Cheat India’ will release in February 2019.
