Actors Arvind Swamy and Kamal Haasan say that no need to prove patriotism by standing for National Anthem in theaters.
“I will always stand up for our Natl Anthem & sing along,which I do with great pride.Never understood why it ws mandatory n cinema halls only.Why not everyday in all govt offices, courts, before assembly and parliament sessions”, tweeted the Thani Oruvan actor
Kamal Haasan said “Singapore plays it’s national anthem every midnight.Likewise do so on DD. Do not force or test my patriotism at various random places.The reason Singapore crops up in arguments is because it is a benovalent dictatorship according to some critics. Do we we want that. No pls”,
