Cinema audiences need not stand for national anthem: Supreme Court


Send to Friend
The Supreme Court Monday said audiences in cinema halls need not stand up when the national anthem was sung or used as part of a movie.

The court was disposing of an appeal by Karan Johar, producer-director of the film "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham", against a Madhya Pradesh High Court order directing the deletion of the national anthem from the film.

The court said the audience was not expected to stand up when the national anthem was part of a newsreel, documentary or movie.

A three-member bench comprising Chief Justice V.N. Khare and judges S.B. Sinha and S.H. Kapadia set aside the high court order and allowed Johar's appeal.
