Naseeruddin ShahNaseeruddin Shah to star in a movie on London bombings

Naseeruddin Shah will play a Muslim police officer in a Bollywood film about the suicide bombings on the London transit system two years ago.

Naseer will play a 55-year-old officer whose commitment to the police force is questioned after the bombings, films director Jagmohan Mundhra told a prominent newspaper.



``The film is a critical take on a policy that allows Scotland Yard to shoot anyone whom they suspect as suicide bombers, even without sufficient evidence,'' Mundhra was quoted as saying.

Naseer's character in the film has served in the force for 30 years when his loyalty is called into question. Mundhra said he plans to begin filming next month.

Relations between the British government and many British Muslims have been strained since the July 7, 2005, bombings of three subway cars and a bus by four British-bred Muslim bombers that killed 52 people.

While the government has expressed concern about radicalization within Britain's Muslim community, British Muslim organizations have spoken out against treating the entire Muslim community as responsible for the actions of a few.

Mundhra's latest movie, Provoked , is the story of domestic violence suffered by an Indian woman married to a British-born Indian man. The film stars the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai in the lead role.
