Bollywood star Emraan Hashmi has started shooting for his next film Cheat India in Lucknow on Wednesday.

Taking to Twitter, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote,” #CheatIndia begins filming in Lucknow today [25 July 2018]... Stars Emraan Hashmi... Directed by Soumik Sen... Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Emraan Hashmi... 25 Jan 2019 release... #RepublicDayWeekend...”

The movie is inspired by the crimes in the Indian education system that have created a parallel ecosystem infested with education mafia.

Earlier, in a press statement, Hashmi 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. I am also looking forward to working with some formidable partners - Soumik, an amazing storyteller.”

Helmed by Gulaab Gang director Soumik Sen, this is the second flick from Hashmi’s production house.

The movie will hit the theatres worldwide on January 25, 2019.
