The Love Guru
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 09, 2008

Mike Myers who gave the world Austin Powers and Dr.Evil, has now created a new character - an Indian Guru. His forthcoming film, The Love Guru features the comic actor as an American swami with long hair, a flowing beard and robes. This is a character who has visited ashrams and wants to beat Deepak Chopra (who will makes a cameo in the

The Love Guru

movie) at holding self-help seminars with titles like, “An Evening of Spiritual Enlightenment with His Holiness the Guru Pitka.” His mantra is ‘Mariska Hargitay’.

Religious leaders are concerned that it might offend Hindus, and distributors releasing the film in India have already been asked to clear it with the censor board. But the comic star insists that the movie isn’t targeted at any faith: “Guru Pitka’s faith, says Myers, “is nondenominational and completely fictional.” He adds that he made the film after five years of being on a spiritual quest, visiting gurus and attending seminars by Deepak Chopra. “I want the film to be a real celebration of life and happiness and silliness,'' the actor said. ''Part of enlightenment is to lighten up.” We’ll just have to wait and see if the Indian censor board feels the same way.
