Actor Sunny Leone, who launched the first trailer of her upcoming film Tera Intezaar, has said one should stand up for the National Anthem, irrespective of the Supreme Court judgement. The apex court on Monday directed the Centre to take a call on the playing of the national anthem in public places, including cinema halls.

Sunny said, “I think patriotism is one of those emotions that come from within, it comes from the heart. Whatever the judgment is, I think you should stand for your National Anthem, I do.”

Arbaaz Khan, who was also present at the trailer launch, said, “Irrespective of Supreme Court’s decision that says that we do not need to stand up for National Anthem when played in theatre, I will always stand up for it. My mind is conditioned that way, it is a practice for me, so whenever I hear National Anthem, I will automatically stand up, no matter what, and it is in my headspace.”

Lyricist-poet Javed Akhtar, film editor-writer Apurva Asrani, singer Adnan Sami and TV actor Anuup Soni, among several other Bollywood celebs, also tweeted about the issue:
