A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra asked the government to consider amending the national flag code if it wanted the anthem to be played in movie halls across the country.

It banned dramatising, abridging or making money from the 52-second-long Jana Gana Mana and said the Tricolour would be displayed on the screen during the duration of the anthem.
