National Anthem must be played in Cinema theaters before movie screening- Supreme CourtToday, the Supreme Court has made an announcement to play the National Anthem in the cinema theaters across the country, before the screening of the movies. They have also mentioned that when the National Anthem is played in the cinema halls, the images of the Tricolor flag should appear on the screen and all the people present inside the hall must stand up, except the disabled.
