Emraan Hashmi to begin shoot of his first home production ‘Cheat India’ in Lucknow

Actor Emraan Hashmi is all set to start shooting for his first home production, ‘Cheat India’. The shooting of the film that begins tomorrow will take place in Lucknow. Apart from Hashmi, ‘Cheat India’ is also being produced by Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar.

Talking about his excitement of shooting in Lucknow for the first time, Emraan told Mumbai Mirror, “I’m glad that my first home production is about a subject that is topical, relevant and volatile. Every Indian student and parent will relate to it. This is the first time I’m shooting in Uttar Pradesh so it’s a different milieu for me. I’ve been reading extensively with the team members, most of whom hail from the region. Even the look-referencing is being done meticulously. I have great production partners, so I am feeling like a stress-free actor and producer.”

A source close to the development told the tabloid, “The team is in the city for a 35-day schedule. We will be shooting all over the city, covering colleges, restaurants, university campuses and houses that have been booked for the shoot. We arrived on location over the weekend to start prep ahead of the shoot.” 

Emraan was last seen in Milan Luthria’s ‘Baadshaho’ that released last year. Helmed by Soumik Sen, ‘Cheat India‘ is reportedly scheduled to hit the silver screens on January 25, 2019.

So friends, aren’t you excited to see Emraan don the hat of a producer with his upcoming film?
