On the occasion of National Education Day, Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi shared the first teaser of his forthcoming film Cheat India. The film focuses on the prevailing education system in the country.

On 11 November, the Jannat actor took to Twitter to unveil the teaser of the film. “A country’s education system is its backbone. Team ‘Cheat India’ celebrates #Nationaleducationday. #CheatIndia #NakalMeinHiAkalHai @tseries.official @emraanhashmifilms @ellipsisentertainment,” he wrote along with the video clip.

Emraan’s maiden production project landed in a controversy previously when filmmaker-actor  Dinesh Gautam and Imran Zahid claimed the storyline of the film was copied from their movie titled Marksheet.

Earlier, speaking about the venture, the actor had said, “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.”

Directed by Soumik Sen, Cheat India, starring Shreya Dhanwanthary alongside Emraan Hashmi, is scheduled to release on January 25, 2019.
