‘Oppenheimer’ is currently a hot topic of debate in India. The Christopher Nolan movie stars Cillian Murphy in the lead. ‘Oppenheimer’ released on Friday alongside Barbie. However, the former has sparked controversy in India over the Bhagavad Gita verse that was used during an intimate scene between Cillian and Florence Pugh. A lot of politicians and Indians have reacted to the use of verse during such a scene. And now, Nitish Bharadwaj, who is known for playing Lord Krishna in Mahabharat has decoded the scene and use of Bhagavad Gita verse in that setting. And now Nitish Bharadwaj, who is famous for portraying Lord Krishna in Mahabharat, has figured out the scene and the significance of the verse from the Bhagavad Gita in that context.
Nitish Bharadwaj, who has portrayed Lord Krishna, explained the purpose of the line from the Bhagavad Gita. The actor claims to an entertainment news website that it instills a sense of duty on the battlefield. He claims that, symbolically speaking, life is all about struggles, particularly internal ones that take place on the front lines. According to Nitish Bharadwaj, the Bhagavad Gita’s shloka 11.32 is all about Arjun being urged to fulfill his duty as a warrior—fighting evil. It is important to understand Krishna’s verse, according to Bharadwaj, who also argues that Krishna tells Arjun that he is time, which would finally destroy everything. Therefore, even if Arjun didn’t kill anyone, everyone will still perish. So he must perform his duties.
The seasoned performer reveals that ‘Oppenheimer’ was uncertain because the atom bomb he invented was used to kill the vast majority of people in Japan. He questioned whether he had carried out his task properly. Nitish continues by adding that ‘Oppenheimer’ was visibly moved to tears throughout the interview, indicating that he regretted the disastrous consequences of his creation. According to Bharadwaj, ‘Oppenheimer’ probably realized that his creation would endanger human life and was regretting it. He claims that the emotional background and emotional state of mind of ‘Oppenheimer’ (played by Cillian Murphy) should be taken into account when interpreting the verse.
According to Bharadwaj, a scientist will consider his creation constantly and regardless of what he is doing. The physical act, according to Nitish, is a natural mechanical act. He says, “I appeal to people to think of this emotional aspect of ‘Oppenheimer’s important moments of life.”

He wonders if his prediction that technology would wipe off humanity was correct after all. Bharadwaj contrasts the current state of affairs with the conflict at Kurukshetra. The conflict did not knowingly employ Dhanurveda, the Veda of war. “The UN must enforce nuclear disarmament seriously. Nolan’s message is loud and clear,” he tells ETimes.
