Lately, the government of India made playing National Anthem mandatory before playing of every film. The entire film industry decided to be quiet. However Twinkle being the hilariously outspoken lady, chose to react in her own inimitable style.
She said- “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. 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 Befihkre, and am about to see Ranveer Singh in his tight red underwear“.
We guess what she said is true to some point!
