A video of a family being thrown out of a cinema hall for not standing for the national anthem has started a debate on patriotism and celebrities turned to Twitter to express their views:

Anupam Kher: 'We should stand for National Anthem. People who don’t want to stand can enter the cinema hall after it is played.'

Ram Gopal Varma: 'Beating up people for not standing up in the theatre while national anthem is being played is the upper limit of height of intolerance. Respect has to come from within and cannot be enforced ..it's downright talibanistic to beat up people for not standing for national anthem.'

Simi Garewal: 'Honestly?!. With my hand on my heart....YESSSS! I also sing all the words...every time!

Raveena Tandon: 'Sad day for India.When we debate whether we should or have the rights "to or not to" respect our national anthem.I'm Indian will do my duty. It's my duty, respect and basic good manners to stand anywhere anytime if my country's National anthem is played. It fills me with pride.'

Rahul Dholakia: 'Do we play our National Anthem at any other place of entertainment ? Then why play it at cinema halls ?'
