Emraan Hashmi: ‘I can’t Do Typical Masala Films’

Emraan Hashmi says I believe something like this wouldn't have been made five years ago.'

'They would have felt it's arty in nature, and would be unsure about investing in it.'

'One may wonder that since there is no action in it or no sex despite me in it who will watch the film?'

After the international film Tigers, Emraan Hashmi dips his fingers into commercial cinema with Cheat India.

Helmed by Gulaab Gang Director Soumik Sen, the film explores India's flawed educational system.

"Every board in our country has a paper leak and every state has a problem of student impersonation" Emraan said.

Emraan said I felt the issue in our Indian education system is something that needs to be brought to the forefront.

I was surprised at how the director and writer of this film had handled such a relevant issue that everyone knows about. Still, there are many things not known.

We have made a great, entertaining, film around it, which also has the commercial trappings of four-songs and all other elements that made it a palatable Bollywood masala movie.

I wanted to get into production and am proud to start with this film.
