An Oppenheimer scene that features a nude Florence Pugh was reportedly modified for Indian audience, with many praising the use of a ‘black dress’ to cover her.
Following their July 21 global releases, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer face fight at the box office. Both films have casts of A-list celebrities that are equally outstanding. They have different content ratings, though. Barbie is classified PG-13, making it appropriate for children over the age of 13, however Oppenheimer is only rated U/A in India, making it appropriate for children under the age of 12 with parental supervision. Florence Pugh and Cillian Murphy’s sex scene is currently in the news.
Others can’t stop gushing about Florence Pugh’s “black dress” in the Oppenheimer sex scene, which stars Cillian Murphy’s Robert Oppenheimer and Florence Pugh, who plays his lover Jean Tatlock. Some are asking for a boycott of the film and want the sequence’s sex between the two characters removed.
According to reports, Oppenheimer features two sex scenes, and it appears that both of them were modified for the Indian market. Currently, Oppenheimer’s sexual sequences are among the most discussed ones in the movie, which had a big opening weekend in India. The two Oppenheimer sex scenes were altered for Indian viewers, according to several Twitter users.
Fans noticed that a naked Florence Pugh was covered in a “black dress” in one of the sex scenes, and they think this was done by the producers to prevent controversy in India. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), according to some, ordered the scene to be changed for the Indian audience.
A person tweeted a screenshot, and said, “So why is this a thing in India?” It showed Florence in what looked like a black dress, but could very well be some computer-generated imagery (CGI). Reacting to the tweet, a Twitter user from India, asked, “Wait. So the actual Oppenheimer scene doesn’t have a black dress?” To which, the person responded, “Nope.” Another person confirmed the black dress did not feature in the uncensored version of Oppenheimer.
The sex scenes with co-star Florence Pugh are “perfect,” according to Cillian Murphy in a recent interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, and they really serve a purpose in the movie.
Speaking about Christopher Nolan’s directorial angle, Cillian had said, “He knew that those scenes would get the movie the rating that it got. And I think when you see it, it’s so f***ing powerful. And they’re not gratuitous. They’re perfect. And Florence is just amazing.”
