While, Kunder, 43, took a jibe by saying National Anthem must be made compulsory at all places of leisure activities, including restaurants.

"This is just half the order. What's the punishment if someone doesn't stand for the National Anthem? Shoot-at-sight? Lynch? Jail? Hanging?

"Why just theatres? National Anthem must be made compulsory at all places of leisure activities. Even at restaurants before beginning to eat," he tweeted.
