Filmmaker Jagmohan Mundra's latest film on terrorism Shoot On
Sight, has been banned in Pakistan. But Mundra says he is not
surprised, "Yes my film Shoot On Sight has been banned in
Pakistan because Pakistani actor Mikaal Zulfikar who plays Zaheer,
a closet - terrorist is shown to be from there".
Pakistan has objected not only to the actor but also to the
character of the terrorist being from Pakistan. Mundra is quite
amused. "In a dialogue between Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri, it is
revealed that the character Zaheer is from Pakistan. The
Pakistanis didn't like it," added Mundra.
What puzzles Jagmohan is that even after facing several
problems, Khuda Kay Liye released in Pakistan. "Khuda Kay
Liye had Pakistani actors in Pakistan playing fundamentalists.
The only thing is that they didn't show any terrorism related
violence. They only showed fundamentalism. But, Shoot On
Sight doesn't spare the audience. It shows the violent
underbelly of fundamentalism. The Pakistanis didn't like that," said Mundra.
