Members of the Republican Party of India (Athawale) shouted slogans and pelted stones at Bollywood actor Anupam Kher's house at Juhu here on Saturday. They were dissenting his derogatory remarks against the Constitution.

Speaking about Anna Hazare's andolan to a television channel on Friday, Mr. Kher had allegedly said that the Constitution should be thrown out.

A group of around 10 RPI workers attacked the actor's house at 8 p.m. They have been apprehended and a case has been registered against them.

It is not known whether the actor was inside his home at the time of the incident.

The police said the security guard shut the gates of the house when the protesters began shouting slogans.

When contacted, RPI leader Ramdas Athawale told The Hindu over telephone that the workers had registered their protest against Mr. Kher's comments.

He demanded that the State Home department inquire into the actor's remarks.

"Mr. Kher is an actor. We all respect him. But his remarks were inappropriate. And it is sad that they came in the context of Anna's agitation. If someone insults our Constitution, our activists will not take it lying down," Mr. Athawale said.
