at holding self-help seminars with titles
like, “An Evening of Spiritual Enlightenment
with His Holiness the Guru Pitka.”

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.
