After the change in the release date, makers of 'Cheat India' have now changed the name of the film to 'Why Cheat India'. Just a week ahead of the release, the makers took to social media and announced the name of the film has been changed. Actor Emraan Hashmi took to Twitter and made the announcement. In a before-after format, he revealed that the title logo of the film is changed and the tagline 'Nakal Mein Hi Akal Hai' which was there in the initial poster has been removed. In fact, the actor added a 'WHY' to his name in the Twitter handle as now it reads, 'WHYemraan hashmi'
Sharing the news on the micro-blogging site, the actor wrote, "Don't ask WHY! But it's WHY! #WhyCheatIndia"
Here's the post:
Previously, the actor announced a new release date for his much-anticipated venture. He took to social media on January 4 and announced that the film which was initially scheduled to release on January 25, this year will now release a week earlier on January 18. Sharing a poster from the film on Twitter, he wrote, "I cheated !! My film #Cheatindia will release one week earlier.. 18th Jan 2019 !! See you in the theatres"
This comes after the controversy that was going on rounds relating to the collation of the release date of the film with the Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Bal Thackeray biopic- 'Thackeray' which is scheduled to premiere on January 23. However, makers of both the films seem to have settled the matter as they made the announcement following a joint press conference at Mumbai on Friday.
'Cheat India' starring Emraan Hashmi and Shreya Dhanwanthary in the lead has been written and directed by Soumik Sen and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Emraan's wife Parveen Hashmi.
The makers dropped the official trailer of the film on December 12 and it looks promising. It seems to be a gripping ride filled with twists and turns as the trailer sees the actor luring brilliant students into writing exams on behalf of others with money while assuring them they won’t get caught. The students get greedy and laugh all the way to the bank. However, matters take a turn for the worse, when the law catches hold of them and the real action begins.
