National Anthem Not Mandatory in Cinema Halls: Supreme Court

National Anthem Not Mandatory in Cinema Halls: Supreme Court


The Supreme Court said playing the national anthem before screening movies in cinema halls is not mandatory. The bench was headed by chief justice Dipak Misra. In November 2016, the Supreme Court had ordered all cinemas to play the anthem before screening a film “for the love of the motherland”.

It also said the national flag must be displayed on the screen for the duration of the anthem and that movie-goers should stand in a show of respect.
