LONDON--(Business Wire)--
Shoot On Sight, the controversial thriller, set to release in UK
on August 22 is the first inspired by the July 7, 2005 underground
bombings in London. The release date of the much anticipated film,
originally scheduled for July 11th was changed to August 22, out of
respect to the 7/7 victim's families, This powerful drama is the first
movie to tackle the issue of suicide bombings on UK soil and the
country's ongoing threat from home-grown terrorists linked to
fundamentalist Islam.

   "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," said Mr. Aron Govil, Producer of
the film, "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," continued Mr. Govil.

   Shoot On Sight has been 100% independently financed and produced
by Mr. Aron Govil, and is being distributed in UK by Aron Govil
Productions along with Tip Top Entertainment.

   The film's star cast includes Brian Cox (Adaptation, Braveheart,
The Bourne Supremacy), Greta Scacchi (The Player, Presumed Innocent,
Shattered), Naseeruddin Shah (Monsoon Wedding, A League of
Extraordinary Gentlemen), Om Puri (East is East, Charlie Wilson's
War), Ralph Ineson (The Office) and Sadie Frost (Dracula, The Krays,
Love, Honour and Obey). Filmed entirely on location in London, Shoot
on Sight is directed by Jagmohan Mundhra.
