It is a role for which director Jagmohan Mundhra sought Amitabh Bachchan . However, the megastar has turned down the offer.

Even as his Provoked is slated to release worldwide in February, Mundhra has already begun working on his next project titled Shoot On Sight .



The film will again be set in UK. It will tell the true story of an Asian Muslim cop in London whose loyalty to the system is doubted after the July 7 train bombings in London. The film attempts to highlight a country's changing point of view towards Asian Muslims after the terrorist attack.

The movie's title perhaps refers to the shoot on sight order given to British police after the attacks. The order gave the cops legal authority to shoot any suspected individual about to carry a terrorist attack. Tragically, an innocent Brazilian died in once such incident.

Earlier, Mundhra had approached Ben Kingsley and Amitabh Bachchan to play the lead role of the Asian Muslim cop. But both actors expressed their inability to do the movie.

Now, Mundhra has signed Naseeruddin Shah for the part.

Naseer, who is presently out of action because of his son Hamid's accident, will most likely begin shooting for the movie in March or April.

The film will also star British actress Greta Scacchi as Naseer's wife.

This will be third consecutive movie by Mundhra to be based on a real life character or incident.
