Ram Gopal Varma, who has been gushing over Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, also shared his thoughts on the Bhagavad Gita squabble that has been swirling around the movie.
In his tweets on Sunday, Ram Gopal Varma was incredibly kind to Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie Oppenheimer. But it was just a matter of time before the outspoken director tweeted his opinion on the Bhagavad Gita controversy surrounding the movie.
His tweet makes reference to a contentious scene in the movie where J. Robert Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy), dubbed “the father of the atomic bomb,” is seen quoting the Bhagavad Gita verse immediately following a passionate scene with his girlfriend (Florence Pugh).
Anurag Thakur, the minister of information and broadcasting, has a stern opinion of the contentious scenario, according to sources with the news agency ANI. In response to the offensive sequence, the minister has sought complete transparency from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
The Minister has given the filmmakers immediate instructions to cut the contentious section from the movie. According to ANI’s sources, he has also threatened to take harsh action against any CBFC members who were engaged in permitting the film’s screening.
