MUMBAI: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie's bodyguards allegedly manhandled some parents and pushed women and a child at a Muslim school here on Thursday.
The incident took place at Anjuman-e-Islam where the actor and her producer, Brad Pritt, had gone to shoot for their film, `A Mighty Heart.'
When classes ended at noon the school gates remained shut. Neither the students nor their guardians who had gone to pick them up could reach the other. The bodyguards' only concern was that no one should come in the way of the shooting.
A bodyguard pushed a child and manhandled a mother, making a threatening gesture. He pushed another woman trying to spot her child, said eyewitnesses. Some said that the children were not allowed to go home for hours because of the shooting.
The parents filed a police complaint against the school management and an unnamed bodyguard who allegedly attacked and abused people.
A school spokesman downplayed the incident as a `minor one.' He said the school had taken the necessary permission for the shooting.
The film unit, however, blamed paparazzi for the confusion. It alleged that photographers wanting to take pictures of Angelina and Brad had rushed in when the gates were opened and that made the scene chaotic.
