No Need To Stand Up For National Anthem If It Is Part Of A Film: Supreme Court



JAMMU, Feb 14: Modifying earlier order that everybody must stand while the national anthem is played in theatres, the Supreme Court today said the audience need not stand if the anthem is part of a film.

Supreme Court said the audience need not stand up when the national anthem is part of the storyline of a film, newsreel or documentary, as was seen in blockbuster Dangal recently.

Supreme Court said it is not compulsory to sing the national anthem in cinema halls and there is  also no need to stand up if it is a part of film.

The Supreme Court had ordered cinema halls across the nation to mandatorily play the national anthem and the audience must stand and show respect.
