After showing 'Hitler's Death Camp', Varun and Janhvi's 'Bawal' was in controversy

Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor starrer ‘Bawal’ has been dragged into controversy due to the scenes related to Nazi death camps. Some groups of viewers protested because it depicted the Nazi execution place called ‘Auschwitz’. The Jewish organization has written an open letter to Prime Video to remove the film, saying, “We request the OTT platform to remove Bawal film.” The film where millions of Nazis are systematically murdered. The film has portrayed Jews in a trivial way.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a human rights NGO dedicated to the memory of the victims of the murder, said Prime Video was asked to remove it “because of the anti-Nazi abuse footage”.

Directed by renowned Indian filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, the film is set in contemporary times and the protagonists enter the gas chambers of Auschwitz, followed by scenes of Jews being suffocated. In the film, human greed and arrogance have been used as an image of Hitler. In the film, the main hero says to his wife, ‘We are all like Hitler, aren’t we?’

Criticizing the film and director Tiwari, Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Jewish organization said in an open letter, “Auschwitz is not a metaphor. This is a great example of man’s ability to portray evil. Nitesh Tiwari insults the memory of the six million Jews and millions of others killed by Hitler’s genocidal regime by declaring to the protagonist that ‘every relationship ends at Auschwitz’.

He went on to say, “If the filmmaker’s goal was to garner publicity for his film by shooting allegedly fictional scenes in Nazi death camps, then he has succeeded.” Amazon Prime (Prime Video) should immediately remove this scene about the suffering of millions of victims of the Nazi Holocaust.

In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, actor Varun Dhawan said, ‘Some people have become agitated or sensitive about this issue. But watching an English film, one cannot understand where their sensibility goes.
