Actor Emraan Hashmi criticized the Central Board of Film Certification order to rename his next film Cheat India for Why fool India?. The actor says that instead of changing the title, we need to change the country's educational system. Emraan was interacting with the media to promote Why fool India? along with his co-actress Shreya Dhanwanthary. The title of the film would have been changed following an objection from the CBFC.
Reacting to the change, Emraan said, "Now they (CBFC) have directed us and we have changed the title of the film." We are a bit upset that they told us to do so just seven days before the movie's release. the promo of the film and now, while giving a certificate of censorship to the film, they had a problem with the title of the film. "
Emraan added that the Indian public is sensitive enough to know what is good and what is bad in the film. "It's kind of sad because we were working on the release of the movie and now, all of a sudden, we're changing the movie title. Cheat India is a negative title, so they suggested that we change to Why fool India? as they felt that this will bring positivity to the title. But I feel that you should know that our audience is sensitive enough to know what is good and what is bad. "
Emraan added that instead of changing the title of a film, we must correct the issues of the educational system. "Mafia cheating is cheating in our country and that's why we kept the title Cheat India. It is very easy to change the title of the film, but I think that more than changing the title of a certain film, we need to change the system, so the youth of this generation will have a better future. "
Speaking about the gaps in the educational system, he said, "I learned a few things in my school life as a student, but there are many things I did not learn during that period."
"We focus on burglaries instead of understanding a subject.In colleges our colleges are unqualified or disinterested in teaching.We have limited places in educational institutions where large numbers of students pass out of schools and colleges every year, he added.
The actor added that he did not know that the Mafia of cheating is an organized crime in the country. "I knew about cheating the mafias, but I did not know it was such a big crime. There are fraudulent mafias all over the country," he said. "We give 60 percent reserve in educational institutes to stay 40 percent." , if we start giving seats to unworthy students, then where do the deserving students go? I thought it was a very important issue and someone needs to make a movie about a subject like that for people to take notice of such practices. "
Emraan said they want the film to have tax-free status in theaters.
The movie will hit theaters this Friday.
