"Whenever the Anthem is sung or played, the audience shall stand to attention. However, when in the course of a newsreel or documentary the Anthem is played as a part of the film, it is not expected of the audience to stand as standing is bound to interrupt the exhibition of the film and would create disorder and confusion rather than add to the dignity of the Anthem." ____Source ::

In a shocking incident, a family was kicked out from the movie theatre as they did not stand for the national anthem.
The incident went viral after their video was uploaded on Facebook and shared thousands of times and also being circulated on WhatsApp and other messaging platforms.
The over two-minute video clip shows a few people arguing with the family, who they accuse of making excuses for not standing up when the national anthem was playing. The video shows the family, surrounded by the group of people, trying to defend itself, but the efforts are in vain.
The family is forced to leave the theatre and the people present there welcome that with applause.

However, the authenticity of the video's location is not verified, some reports say it is from Mumbai, others say it is from Bengaluru.
