Former Bollywood actor, Twinkle Khanna is best known for her witty and logical take on things running in the society. Recently, she wrote an article for the Times Of India and has an insightful take on the mandate of the Supreme Court to play the National Anthem in all the cinema halls. The bestselling author, Twinkle states that she isn’t ready to watch the Befikre star, Ranveer in his red underwear after giving a standing salute to the national anthem.
She wrote, “Now, I am admittedly one of those barmy women who get teary-eyed during our national anthem and bellow it out as loudly as we can, much to the embarrassment of our children.I have even gone on a tour to the Wagah border where, along with the 200 people sitting beside me, I too screamed myself hoarse with ‘Jai Hind’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ competing vigorously with the Pakistanis raising their slogans across the border, because not having variable parameters to judge nationalism, we seem to simply define it by volume, hoping the loudest wins.”

Twinkle continues to write further which has a valid point and a food for thought. Twinkle writes, “But I still can’t wrap my head around how and why I am obliged to feel patriotic when I have merely booked tickets for Befikre, and am about to see Ranveer Singh in his tight red underwear. And wondering why respecting our national anthem seems so much more important than respecting our land, I put my phone away and go back to planting a few more seeds before the sun sets.”
The Indian court issued a mandate which said that it is necessary that every Indian cinema hall must play our national anthem before the start of any movie and give due respect to it by standing up, through that course of time.
Twinkle, you really win our hearts by being too blunt and honest with your views and the way you look into the society. Kudos, Mrs. Funnybones.
