Bombay the Hard Way: Guns, Cars and Sitars is a 1998 project of producer Dan The Automator in which music from 1970s funk Bollywood composer duo Kalyanji-Anandji (Kalyanji Virji Shah and Anandji Virji Shah) was taken and given a funky remix. The album was eventually withdrawn (possibly due to copyright concerns). A sequel, Bombay 2: Electric Vindaloo, was also produced.

The album is also heavily credited to American producer DJ Shadow, but it is stated on his website that, "The marketing campaign for this Dan the Automator remix project implied massive DJ Shadow involvement, which was far from the case; Shadow played drums for 30 minutes one day in the studio, elements of which were resampled and applied to various tracks. Shadow was dismayed by the record company's blatant exploitation of his name, and distanced himself from the project."
