Angelina Jolie's bodyguards allegedly roughed up parents and students Thursday at a school where she was filming scenes for her new movie, "A Mighty Heart," witnesses said.
The fracas began when the gates of the Anjuman-e-Islam school, which had been locked during filming, were opened to let the parents fetch their children.
"This Jolie's bodyguard called one parent, `You bloody Indian,'" said Mohammed Yusuf Patni, general secretary of the school's Parent Teacher Association. "Children were pushed around."
Patni, who has two children studying at the Muslim school, said "mothers were also shoved aside by the guards."
Dallington TV, a British production company that organized the shoot, blamed the scuffle on photographers and television cameramen that it said rushed the school to get pictures of Jolie.
"We had the full permission and cooperation of the school to film on the premises," Dallington said in a statement. "When the gates were opened to allow the parents in to collect their children, the paparazzi rushed the school causing confusion."
