A Punjab Police team arrested Rakhi Sawant at her Mumbai home.
The complainants had accused the actor of hurting religious sentiment of the Valmiki community with her comments on a TV show last year.
The case will be heard next on April 10.
Rakhi Sawant is best known for appearances in reality TV shows like Bigg Boss and Rakhi Ka Swayamwar. She has also acted in many Bollywood films but her outrageous comments have often drawn more attention.
In 2014, Rakhi Sawant tried her hand at politics and contested the general elections from the Mumbai North West constituency as an Independent candidate.
