Indian Filmmaker Tackles London Bombings

Indian director JAGMOHAN MUNDHRA is making a movie based on the 2005 London terrorist bombings. Mundhra has cast EAST IS EAST star OM PURI and THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN actor NASEERUDDIN SHAH in the movie SHOOT ON SITE, which he insists is mostly fictional, despite the film's inspiration. The director is turning his attention to the 22 July 2005 shooting of Brazilian electrician JEAN CHARLES DE MENEZES, who was killed by police as he boarded a London Underground train at Stockwell, south London. Police mistook De Menezes for a suspected terrorist, but it quickly emerged he was an innocent man in a case of mistaken identity. In Mundhra's film, he will swap De Menezes' character for a Muslim boy and show the UK authorities' reaction to their mistake.

You state that Jean Charles de Menezes was killed by "police" as he boarded an underground train. He had already boarded and taken a seat. He was killed by persons unknown, and there is no evidence that his killers were constables within a civilian police force. The men were not wearing uniform and did not identify themselves as police. The police ( and government) worked hard to prevent both an Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation, and a coroner's inquest. How could anyone make a fictional version when the facts are still hidden? You might tell the truth inadvertently, and be prosecuted.
