New Delhi: Sanjay Leela Bhansali is having a bad time ahead of the release of ‘Ram-Leela’. The movie starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone has reportedly been dragged into court by the Rajput Samaj.

The Group alleges that the film shows the two Gujarati communities at loggerheads and hence inciting caste war between the communities. A leading daily reported that the head of the Jadeja community made an objection and threatened to move court to ban the movie in the state over a wrongful portrayal of Jadeja and Rabari communities there.

The allegations are being taken into account by the director and rumour has it that he has called back the artists to dub for the objectionable parts again.

Previously `Ram-Leela` was also dragged into court over hurting religious sentiments. However the court refused to entertain the plea, and also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the NGO Rashtravadi Shiv Sena that filed the petition.
