Emraan Hashmi is having a tough time at box-office these days as none of his films are actually working from a really long time now. There was a time when Emraan Hashmi meant a hit at the box office but looks like the charisma got lost somewhere. Yea, in the digital arena Emraan is picking up the pace with works like ‘Tigers’ and ‘Bard of Blood’ but he is surely looking for a win at the box office and I guess ‘Cheat India’ will be his staircase to success.
The film will trace the story of Ranjit Singh alias Ranjit Don who was a criminally genius mind who completely played with the Indian education system in the 2000s and did frauds that were unimaginable. Emraan Hashmi will be reprising his role in the film and he looks utterly convincing as the shrewd man.
The 2-minute trailer has managed to intrigue everyone with its fresh concept and execution. The trailer gives a sneak peek of a potential joyride of a film. So, it throws light on how the exam centers were managed by Ranjit in order to get the desired candidates selected in any particular competitive exam.
Emraan Hashmi talked about the film and 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.”
The film will hit the theatres on January 25 and will be clashing with Kangana Ranaut’s epic ‘Manikarnika’.
