“One is perplexed as to how the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) could approve the movie with this scene,” said Uday Mahurkar, Information Commissioner with the government of India, sharing a press release by the ‘Save Culture Save India Foundation’.

The scene in question has Robert Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy) having sexual contact while reading the Bhagavad Gita.

“A scene in the movie shows a woman make a man read Bhagwad Geeta aloud while getting over him and doing sexual intercourse… This should be investigated by I & B Ministry on an urgent basis and those involved should be severely punished,” the press statement by ‘Save Culture Save India Foundation adds.


The first film under Christopher Nolan’s direction to receive an R-rating is Oppenheimer. However, after the studio deleted several footage from the sex scene to shorten the movie, India’s censor board assigned the movie a U/A classification. The studio reportedly made the modifications because they did not believe the censor board would approve the sequence.

The film opened to stellar reviews from film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 4.5 stars out of 5 and he wrote, “Oppenheimer, a cinematic achievement of blinding brilliance, achieves a sublime combination of visual grandeur, technical flair, emotional intimacy and an examination of the limits of human endeavour and ambition.”
