A mob sought to vandalise the sets of Bollywood film producer Pooja Bhatt's under-production movie during its shooting near a prison in Rajasthan's Udaipur town Tuesday, police said.

A police officer in Udaipur said that the film's shooting was taking place near the premises of the Udaipur Central Jail where the people tried to vandalise the movie sets.

"Prison guards and policemen later forced the mob to leave the venue. First information reports (FIRs) will be registered against the protestors," said the officer.

Bhatt alleged that these men vendalised the shooting venue and tried to damage property while supporting an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer whom she had accused of misbehaving with her and manhandling her film crew three days earlier.

The shooting of her movie "Bad" is taking place in Udaipur, some 400 km from Jaipur.

"Some 50-75 people barged into Central Jail Udaipur shouting slogans against me and threatening to shut down my shoot," she tweeted after the incident.

On Saturday, Bhatt accused IPS officer Hari Prasad Sharma, deputed as superintendent of police (SP) in Udaipur, of manhandling her film crew after he was asked for an identification card when entering his office in the district collectorate where the shooting was taking place.

After the incident, Bhatt Sunday wrote to Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, demanding action against Sharma.

The protestors who barged into the movie sets on Tuesday were supporting the police officer and said the film producer and her crew misbehaved with Sharma when he was entering his office for some important government work.

"Pooja Bhatt blew the matter out of proportion. She has Twitter and many other platforms to express herself. The police officer didn't have a chance to tell his side of story. We would not allow this thing to happen," said a protestor.

Pooja Bhatt tweeted after the incident Tuesday, "(I) have resumed work but unfortunately one of the constables was injured while trying to disperse the mob. How can this behaviour be condoned?"
