Emraan posted the same picture on Instagram and of his upcoming film Cheat India, he wrote: "It is one of the most engaging and riveting scripts I've read in a long, long time." He also added: "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 filmography."

Of his new film, Soumik Sen earlier told news agency IANS: "This film is for every Indian student who is under pressure to excel in a competitive environment. Today's youth will hugely relate to Cheat India."
