T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment are repeating their partnership following the box office success of the acclaimed Vidya Balan-starrer Tumhari Sulu. The two front-running content companies have partnered with Emraan Hashmi Films on their next production, Cheat India. The edge-of-the-seat drama, largely inspired by real incidents, will be directed by Soumik Sen.
Emraan Hashmi will headline the film, which takes a startling look at the crimes in the Indian education system that has created a parallel eco-system infested with greed harvesters. 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 filmography. 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.”
