New Delhi: Short filmmaker Ullhas PR on Monday filed a police complaint against Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, accusing him of taking more time than mandated while singing the national anthem during the Twenty20 World Cup clash between India and Pakistan.

The complaint was lodged at the New Ashok Nagar police station in east Delhi.

Bachchan sang the national anthem on March 19 at the Eden Garden in Kolkata along with thousands at the sprawling stadium -- before the high-voltage match began.

Ullhas told IANS: "Amitabh Bachchan sang the national anthem in 1 minute 10 seconds while the mandatory time is 52 seconds. One can take two or three seconds more or less while singing the national anthem but Amitabh crossed the mandated time limit."

In his complaint, Ullhas also said that Bachchan used the word "Sindhu" in place of "Sindh" while singing the anthem.

The filmmaker had on November 25 last year filed a police complaint against Bollywood actor-producer Aamir Khan for his remarks on intolerance in the country.

Earlier, he lodged a complaint against Aamir Khan following the release of his film "PK", in which he referred to policemen as "thulla".
