An FIR has been filed against actor Ranveer Singh and film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. A lawyer has filed an FIR against the duo on charges of manhandling the former on the sets of "Bajirao Mastani".

Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali were shooting for "Bajirao Mastani" in an area that reportedly falls amidst some government offices. The lawyer, identified as Wajid Khan, was going to one of the offices when the two allegedly manhandled him and a bouncer threw him out.

"Their shooting was taking place in the middle of government offices. So, I had to go to one of the offices for my personal work. But, Sanjay Leela Bhansali shouted and said 'yeh kala coat wala kaun hai (who is this black coat person?). I told him that I didn't want to watch the shooting but one of the bouncers grabbed my coat and threw me out. Later, Ranveer Singh said do not allow such kind of people over here," Absolute India quoted Wajid Khan as saying.

Earlier, an FIR was filed against Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of a certain community with their film "Ram Leela".

"Bajirao Mastani" features Ranveer Singh as Bajirao, Deepika Padukone as Mastani and Priyanka Chopra as Kashibai -- Bajirao's first wife.

The film is slated to be released on 18 December and will clash at the box office with Shah Rukh Khan's "Dilwale".
