Mumbai: Veteran Bollywood actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar was attacked allegedly by members of his neighbouring society as he complained about them wasting water during Holi celebrations.

Mumbai police have registered a case of rioting against five persons who allegedly manhandled veteran Bollywood actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar for complaining against wastage of water during a Holi event in his neighbourhood.

Police said the incident took place Wednesday evening when a TV news channel approached the actor to speak about the current water crisis in Maharashtra.

Amrapurkar, who lives in Versova, told the channel that 'a rain-dance' was going on at Panchavati building in his neighbourhood and asked them to shoot it as an instance of water wastage and people's insensitivity.

When the channel's camera-person went to shoot it, some of the revellers took objection.

As Amrapurkar tried to intervene, he was also pushed, police said.

Police have recorded the statements of Amrapurkar and the camera-person and filed a case against the five persons.
