They said police personnel posted on security duty chased away the protestors but the crew decided not to shoot at that location.

The crew later went to nearby temple town of Mattan and resumed shooting there, the sources said. No one was hurt in the incident.

The movie, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, also features Shraddha Kapoor, Irrfan and Tabu.
