Nitesh Tiwari-directed Bawaal has been receiving mixed responses from the netizens, referring to the holocaust plot. In an interview with Pinkvilla, the film’s lead actor Varun Dhawan reacted to it and said, “Some people got trigged or sensitive about this. But I don’t understand where does that sensitivity or trigger go when they watch, suppose an English film, I’m saying for example. They’re allowed to do everything there, they’re allowed to take leaps and they’re allowed to show things in a certain way, but you’ll find that correct.”
Indirectly referring to Nolan’s film Oppenheimer, the actor continued, “I know people have got very triggered after watching a small scene in a brilliant film, recently released. It’s a scene that’s important to our culture and our country. But that’s okay for you. You don’t feel they should be more sensitive to you? So where does your criticism go then?”
