Members of the Valmiki community in Rajasthan on Friday tore and burnt posters of Salman Khan-starrer film "Tiger Zinda Hai" protesting against alleged use of a derogatory word by the actor in a recent interview.

The members of the community tore and burnt the posters of the film at two cinema halls, following which more than 30 members of a group were put under preventive arrest from different locations, additional commissioner of Jaipur Police Prafulla Kumar said.

He said no one injured in the protest and the situation was brought under control, he said.

He said protests were held across the state, posters of the film were burnt and screening of the movie was disrupted by the protesters in different parts of the state.
