New Delhi [India], January 16 (ANI): After announcing his first home production, 'Captain Nawab', actor Emraan Hashmi has signed his second movie under his production banner titled 'Cheat India'.

The actor took to his Instagram page to share a photo announcing the project and revealed details about what could be his most ambitious project to date.

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."

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!
