Apparently, Preity asked a person to leave the theatre as he refused to stand for the National Anthem which was played before the movie. Unfortunately, Zinta received more brickbats than bouquets for her 'patriotic' act. She proudly tweeted sharing her experience and one day later, deleted the tweet.

But Preity's action didn't go down well with the social media community which asked her to stop 'bullying' in the name of patriotism.

I can imagine Preity Zinta "throwing" someone out of a private screening, organized by her. Not when the guy paid for his own movie ticket.— Aniruddha Guha (@AniGuha) October 7, 2014
