Amritsar, Aug 8 (UNI) A group of 20 to 25 miscreants tried to disrupt the first show of the Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer, ''Singh is King'' at a theatre in the holy city this morning.

According to police sources, the miscreants tore posters of the film outside the cinema hall and tried to enter the theatre. A police party led by Sub-Inspector Harbhajan Singh, which was on duty at the theatre, swung into action and forced the miscreants to flee.

Four of them, including their leader Gurjinder Singh, were taken into custody.

The miscreants, who were protesting against the screening of the film belonged to an insignificant organisation called ''Sikh Youth Federation of Bhindranwale''. The members of the organisation alleged that the movie portrayed the Sikhs in ''poor light''.

The police has made elaborate security arrangements outside the two theatres in the city where this movie is being screened.

Reports said that security arrangements have been made at all theatres in Punjab where the movie opened today. The film has already been cleared by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) and a few other sikh organisations.
