So, the Supreme Court of India has made it mandatory to play the National Anthem before movies and all the exits of the cinema halls will be shut during that time. The court has also stressed that everyone should stand to show their respect and there should also be a picture of the national flag on the screen.
The judges said,
When the national anthem is played it is imperative for everyone to show honour and respect. It would instill a sense of committed patriotism and nationalism.
This news soon went viral and twitteratis got another topic. They started trolling the Supreme Court’s order. Here are some funniest tweets!
If you sing the National Anthem three times in front of a mirror, Modiji appears and gives you a 100 rupee note.

I always thought “Vicco Turmeric, nahi cosmetic” was our national anthem which is why it played before every movie.
