- Cheat India is based on education scams in India
- The film will release on January 25, 2019
- Shreya Dhanwanthary is making her Bollywood debut with the film
Months after unveiling the first poster of Cheat India, the makers are here with the teaser of the film featuring Emraan Hashmi. Inspired by true events, the film features Emraan, who reportedly plays the role of professor named Rakesh Singh. Rakesh helps aspiring medical and engineering candidates clear their entrance examination but not by fair means. "Upar wala dua qubool karta hai, main sirf cash leta hoon," Emraan says in the trailer. The film highlights the corruption prevalent in the Indian education system. Shreya Dhanwanthary, who is making her Bollywood debut with the film, is not part of the teaser. Emraan Hashmi shared the teaser of the film on social media and wrote: "Students, parents, educationists, politicos, media and countrymen. The teaser of Cheat India.
