Arvind Swamy Says Country Is Not Represented At Film Screenings – Why Play The Anthem?


Arvind Swamy is irked at the recent Supreme Court decision to make it mandatory for the national anthem to be played before the start of every film.

The Bogan actor said that it made sense for the anthem to be played during a big sporting event or at overseas functions where the country was being represented.

He also pointed out that blocking exits during the anthem might prove to be disastrous.

The Supreme Court’s decision has been welcomed by actors like Randeep Hooda and Taapsee Pannu, as well as director Shoojit Sircar. Few in the industry have expressed disapproval towards the move thus far.
