Jag Mundhra’s Shoot on Sight slated to release in the UK


Mumbai: Jagmohan Mundhra’s Shoot On Sight, the controversial thriller, is set to release in the UK on 22 August.

The film is inspired by the 7 July 2005 underground bombings in London. The release date of the film, originally scheduled for 11 July was changed to 22 August, out of respect to the 7/7 victim’s families.

"Shoot on Sight is the first British film to deal with the post-7/7 London climate of fear and racial bias after the bombings that irrevocably changed the city. The film re-enacts the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes who is replaced with a young Muslim and the plot moves to focus on a London police commander Tariq Ali who is inspired by real life Tarique Ghaffur," said producer of the film Aron Govil.

Shoot On Sight is being distributed in UK by Aron Govil Productions along with Tip Top Entertainment.

The film’s star cast includes Brian Cox, Greta Scacchi, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Ralph Ineson, and Sadie Frost. The movie is filmed entirely on location in London.

Shoot on Sight will be released in over 100 cinemas on 22 August.
