Ballia: A local court today deferred the hearing of a petition filed against actor Aamir Khan, producer Bobby Bedi and director Ketan Mehta alleging wrong portrayal of war hero Mangal Pandey in the Bollywood flick `Mangal Pandey: The Rising`, till January 10.

Civil Judge junior division Azad Singh posted the matter for hearing on January 10 as hearing could not be held due to a function of the bar association, sources said.

It was five years ago that the film was released and Santosh, a descendant of the war hero, had filed a suit in the court against the Bollywood trio alleging that the hero of the 1857 uprising was wrongly portrayed in the mega-budget film.

The court had earlier rejected the star`s claim that neither did Mangal Pandey hail from Nagwa village and nor was Santosh his great grandson.

The court had also fined the actor, producer and director for non-appearance in court.
