However, a controversial scene in the movie that involved the religious text, Bhagavad Gita, has hurt Hindu religious sentiments. While many fans showed their anger on social media, Anurag Thakur said as quoted by India Today, "How was such a scene allowed to pass?" Thakur, who is also the  Information and Broadcasting Minister, questioned the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for not deleting the scenes from the movie.

According to reports, action might be taken against some CBFC officials, who are responsible for permitting the objectionable scene in the movie. In the film, Oppenheimer appeared to have sexual intercourse with psychologist Jean Tatler, played by Florence Pugh. Tatler insisted Oppenheimer to reads out the verse she points at from a Sanskrit book, whose title or cover is not visible. However, the verse reads, "Now, I am become Death, destroyer of the world," which many claimed are the lines from the Bhagavad Gita.
