The release date for Emraan Hashmi’s next movie, Cheat India, has been announced. The film will take on Hrithik Roshan's Super 30, which is being directed by Queen-fame Vikas Bahl, and is slated for release on the same day.

Speaking about Cheat India, Emraan wrote on Instagram, “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.”

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!

The movie will be seeing worldwide release on January 25, 2019, under Emraan Hashmi Films, in collaboration with Ellipsis Entertainment and T-Series. Inspired by the crimes in the Indian education system, the film will be directed by Soumik Sen.

Hrithik Roshan, who was last seen in Kaabil, will portray the life of mathematician Anand Kumar who's known for being the founder of the coaching venture Super 30. Anand Kumar, who hails from Bihar, runs Super 30 through which he coaches underprivileged children for the prestigious and highly-coveted IIT entrance examinations.

Akshay Kumar, who routinely releases a movie on Republic Day, hasn't announced any movie for the date yet.
