Film­maker and ac­tor Ar­baaz Khan has said that although the Supreme Court has not man­dated it for the cit­i­zens to stand if and when the na­tional an­them is played at pub­lic places, he will al­ways get up to pay his re­spect to it. “Ir­re­spec­tive of Supreme court's de­ci­sion that says that we do not need to stand up for na­tional an­them when [it is] played in theatre, I will al­ways stand up for it,” he said at an event. The ac­tor, who fea­tured in films such as Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998) and Hello Brother (1999) feels that his mind is “con­di­tioned” in a way that “it is a prac­tice” for him. “So when­ever I hear the na­tional an­them, I will au­to­mat­i­cally stand up, no mat­ter what, and it is in my headspace,” he said. Ac­tor Sunny Leone, who was also present at the event, added, “I think pa­tri­o­tism is one of those emo­tions that come from within, it comes from the heart. What­ever the judge­ment is, I think you should stand for your Na­tional An­them; I do.” On Mon­day, the Supreme Court directed the Cen­tre to take a call on play­ing of the na­tional an­them in pub­lic places, in­clud­ing cin­ema halls.
