Produced by Arun Govil Productions, Hindi Film SHOOT ON SIGHT starring Indian veteran actors Naseerudin Shah, Om puri and Gulshan Grover, is all set to storm the Indian theatres on October 17, 2008. The film will also release in English Version along with the Hindi one. The film also stars renowned Hollywood actors like, Greta Scacchi, Brian Cox, Laila Rouass and Sadie Frost and is a thriller based on the July 7, 2005 bombings in London. SHOOT ON SIGHT has been directed by Jag Mundhra, a London Based Indian Film Director, who shot to fame with films like BAWANDAR and PROVOKED.

Naseer speaks on his character in the film ''I am playing Tariq a Muslim Cop working with the British Police. The thought that he is a brown guy working in a white force, doesn’t occur to Tariq. He is married to a white woman and has two children from her like my very own ones– He is like Naseer in real life. I am a Muslim and my wife is a Hindu but my children are free to choose their own faiths. Though there is just one difference, the kind of way in which Tariq speaks English, is different to me.''

Indian actor Om Puri plays the character of an Imaam, ''Junaid is an Imaam for a mosque, an educated guy whose beliefs are extreme, but there is a certain amount of truth in it. He gives the sensible examples like what the Americans have to do in Iraq; they have no business to be there? Junaid is by no means a moderate person.'' Is what Om Puri says of his character in SHOOT ON SIGHT.

Filmed entirely on one of the location in London, SHOOT ON SIGHT is based on a true story of Tariq Ali, a Muslim police officer working with the Scotland Yard. ''I was not trying to appease the fundamentalists when I was making the film. I made the film because after the bombings, I was in London and I noticed that my looks went against me, probably because I have a beard and I resemble a Muslim. I couldn't even get a taxi back to my apartment,' says Jag Mundhra.

Be it BAWANDAR, PROVOKED or the now ready–to–release SHOOT ON SIGHT, most of Mundhra's films are based on real life. He however admits that drama is important for all kinds of movies.
