Oppenheimer: Indian were not happy with the adult scene in movie! Said it is a direct attack on ‘Hinduism’

The biographical drama tells the story of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer as he and a group of scientists rush to complete the infamous Manhattan Project, which culminated with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan on August 6, 1945.

In the film, Robert Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy, 47) and Jean Tatlock (Florence Pugh, 27) are engaged in sexual intercourse until Jean walks over to a bookshelf and grabs a copy of “Bhagavad Gita” and asks Murphy to read from it.

“Oppy” then reads the line, “I am become Death, destroyer of worlds,” as the duo resumes sexual intercourse.

The line is said to be what the real-life Oppenheimer thought as the first nuclear bomb exploded.

Thousands of Indians flocked to see the movie upon its premiere last week, but many of them began protesting on social media immediately after the scene.

As per social media reports, a scene in the movie shows a woman [making] a man read ‘Bhagwad Geeta’ aloud while getting over him and doing sexual intercourse.”

She is holding Bhagwad Geeta in one hand, and the other hand seems to be adjusting the position of their reproductive organs,” Mahurkar’s tweet continues. “The Bhagwad Geeta is one of the most revered scriptures of Hinduism. Geeta has been the inspiration for countless sanyasis, brahmacharis and legends who live a life of self-control and perform selfless noble deeds.”
