Only country in the whole world to make use of the National Anthem for business purposes !

Mumbai – National sentiments of the countrymen loving their country are being hurt for making use of the National Anthem in the advertisement of the film ‘Mardaani’. Presently the film in which Rani Mukerjee is acting as the main character, is being advertised in theatres.

Rani Mukerjee surrounded by lady police is shown singing compete National Anthem. At the end of the song, slogans of the film, ‘She is bold, She is fearless, She is independent, she is India…’ are shown. It appears like all these attributes representing the distinguishing features of Bharatmata are made with reference to the heroine of the film. Therefore despite having no willingness to stand the viewers are compelled to stand during the the National song played in the advertisement and they have to remain alert throughout the song till it ends.

In this way the producer of the film has hurt the national sentiments by making use of the people having love for their nation, for business purpose. On the You Tube www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1UUOVUqOc, the advertisement is addressed as Mardaani Anthem. All the nation lovers are expressing their displeasure making a demand to stop this advertisement immediately.
