While the recent mandatory decision by Supreme Court to play National Anthem in cinema halls before screening the movie across the nation has left film buffs unhappy, some of the celebrities have boldly questioned the move.
Aravind Swami sensibly asked on his Twitter page: “With all due respects, Why should the national anthem be played before the start of a movie? Can anyone explain. I can understand playing the anthem where the country is represented, or like a big sporting event with tens of thousands of ppl.”
He also advised that exit halls must always be kept open irrespective of whether anthem is played or not. “Exits in theatres or in any place with so many people inside should not be blocked… anthem or no anthem, hope they review this decision.”
