Emraan Hashmi responds on 'Why Cheat India' title

Mumbai, January 12: We all know that The title of Emraan Hashmi starrer Cheat India has been changed and the new title of the film is Why Cheat India. Emraan Hashmi talks about the changes said that it is ridiculous . There is no choice for the makers of Cheat India to question the censor board, because of less time so they agree to a new title "Why Cheat India" upon the censor board s suggestion. But the film s actor and producer Emraan said that it is "illogical" and "ridiculous". "Why Cheat India" is about the education system.

When Emraan has been asked about the title, which had to be changed last minute, Emraan said, "CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) members found the title misleading. According to them, our film is showing India in a negative light. But that s what it is...what we are showing is a mirror to the system...they should understand it."

"Fundamentally, if the system has open and analytical thinking, then you would not do such illogical things. Changing the film s title at the last moment does not make any sense.

"The Cheat India title has been there for a year... CBFC approved all our promos earlier, but now what they have done is absolutely illogical. There is no logic at all," a visibly upset Hashmi told on Friday while promoting the film.

However, he feels the title change won t impact the motive of the film.

"I am happy that our audience is mature enough to judge a particular film. They watch the film for the content, not for the title. I m sure this title transition from Cheat India to Why Cheat India won t hamper the business and motive of our film."

Hashmi s co-star and debutante Shreya Dhanwanthary expressed her anger over the CBFC s decision.

She said: "I don t understand how censor board can smoothly pass the films which impart a lot of violence and vulgarity, but they have problems with social issue based film like Cheat India ."

Directed by Soumik Sen, "Why Cheat India" is scheduled to release on January 18. It was earlier due to hit the screens on January 25 along with "Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi" and "Thackeray". Emraan Hashmi is going to make his debut as a producer with his film Why Cheat India .
