The 63rd Filmfare Awards proved to be a night of high glitz, glamour and achievement. T-Series films Tumhari Sulu and Hindi Medium achieved the remarkable feat of taking home three top film awards.

Hindi Medium, bagged the Filmfare Award for Best Film. A quirky social comment on the education system, Hindi Medium was jointly produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and Maddock Films’ Dinesh Vijan.

T-Series had more reason to feel elated when Vidya Balan won the Best Actor (Female) Award for Tumhari Sulu, jointly produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment. Jagga Jasoos, which won Best Music Album was also released under the T-Series music label.

T-Series chairman and managing director Bhushan Kumar says, “We are overwhelmed with the recognition Hindi Medium received at the Filmfare Awards last night. We are also delighted at Vidya Balan’s win for Tumhari Sulu and Irrfan Khan’s for Hindi Medium. Working with committed actors is a huge blessing.”

Our joint producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Arun Kasbekar and Dinesh Vijan deserve equal credit for bringing these remarkable and thought provoking stories to the audience. We hope to continue to produce engaging content like Hindi Medium and Tumhari Sulu in days to come.”

T-Series, Ellipsis Entertainment & Emraan Hashmi Films unite for CHEAT INDIA

T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment are repeating their partnership following the box office success of the acclaimed Vidya Balan-starer Tumhari Sulu.
The two front-running content companies have partnered with Emraan Hashmi Films on their next production, Cheat India.

The edge-of-the-seat drama, largely inspired by real incidents, will be directed by Soumik Sen.

Emraan Hashmi will headline the film, which takes a startling look at the crimes in the Indian education system that has created a parallel eco-system infested with greed harvesters.

Says Hashmi, “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 film-ography. I am also looking forward to working with some formidable partners – Soumik, an amazing storyteller, Ellipsis, the new kids with a pulse on clutter-breaking content and marketing, and T-Series, with whom I share an old association on music and films.”

Says Sen, “This film is for every Indian student who is under pressure to excel in a competitive environment. Today’s youth will hugely relate to Cheat India.”

Says Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, “We are increasingly treading the path of strong creative partnerships, and in line with that, we are excited about co-creating Cheat India, which, we believe, will reflect the new-age appetite for compelling content rooted in realism.”

Remark Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar of Ellipsis Entertainment, “The projects we are developing are incredibly diverse, varied in scope, and speak to the elevated tastes of audiences today. The story of Cheat India will entertain and uplift, and we’re delighted to be bringing it to life.”

Cheat India is slated for a February 2019 release.
