Mumbai: After announcing his first home production, 'Captain Nawab' in August 2016, actor Emraan Hashmi has signed his second movie under his production banner titled 'Cheat India'.

Emraan Hashmi took to his Instagram page to share a photo announcing the project.

 

He wrote, "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."

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 film-ography. Thank you for all your love and mark February 2019 in your calendar!

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.”
