Complaint against Amitabh Bachchan for singing incorrect national anthem before India vs Pakistan ICC World Twenty20 match
source: The Indian Express

A complaint was filed against superstar Amitabh Bachchan at Ashok Nagar police station, New Delhi on Monday for allegedly singing incorrectly the national anthem during the World T20 clash between India and Pakistan.

The complaint filed by Ulhas PR states that the anthem was sung incorrectly and was of 1 minute and 22 seconds (as against the 52 seconds approximately according to the guidelines of Ministry of Home Affairs).

Bachchan was present at the Eden Garden grounds and he sang the National Anthem before the match began.

Earlier there were reports that the actor had charged Rs. 4 crore as his appearance fee during the match. However, top Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) official cleared the air, confirming that Bachchan didn't charge a single penny.

Cricket Association of Bengal president Sourav Ganguly was quoted by Anandabazar Patrika that Bachchan paid a sum of Rs 30 lakh out of his own pocket for his stay and travel to Kolkata.

yes
it should be 52 second only while amitji's was 1.22 minutes,
Amit ji even spends 30 Lakh for stays for one night in ''city of joy '' [ with himself, Abhishek and half dozen relatives of Ashwariyas family friends]
plus he bought tickets online from bumbai, prior to his visit to cal cutta [ Ganguli keep free pass for amitji which he denied to accept ]

when Ganguli ask amitji [ suppose to pay 3 crore by bengal cricket association ] about money , he denied to accept @ penny.

Indeed, instead of singing at 78 rpm he sang it at the speed of 60 rpm and he took much longer than what it normally takes to sing the national anthem.

I thought you guys were talking about the Bangladeshi or the Sri Lankan.

The Sri Lankan is almost longer then a T20 match.

Oh and btw,. while there is a "directive' that it should be only 52 seconds or something like that, it is NOT a law.. it is just a guideline.

Also the FULL janaganamana by Tagore takes 3 days to sing if sung fully.

As long as it does not miss words it should be ok.
But, India got tons of languages. An extended word in one language gives totally different meaning in another language. Indian anthem is written in Bengali & Bengali words often mispronounced by non Bengali folks. It's better if its sung as-is instead of singing like an ex- has-been-celebrity singing at SUPERBOWL of NFL in freestyle.
