Recently, the Supreme Court had made it mandatory to play the National Anthem in theatres, before starting the feature presentation. This order did receive mixed reactions from various parts of India.
Film-makers and actors did come out to express their views regarding the same. Now, prominent actor-director Vineeth Sreenivasan, has come up with his views on the same.
He opened about his views in Meet The Press programme which was held at Kottayam Press Club in connection with the upcoming film Aby, in which he does the titular role.
Vineeth Sreenivasan opined that this new rule would challenge those people who make small films of lesser duration. He also added that anything outside the story element would add to the length of the movie, which in turn might affect small films, especially if there comes a situation when a film has to be edited due to running time issues.
The actor-director also stated that audiences would be ready to spend more than 3 hours to watch superstar movies, but other movies might get affected if the duration is more. Vineeth Sreenivasan also affirmed that he is a true patriot and respects the National Anthem.
