No Love in India


The Mike Myers-fronted comedy flick Love Guru may be banned in India.

What’d he do????

Hindu groups in the country have reportedly requested that India’s Central Board of Film Certification and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ban screenings of the picture in India.

About 80% of India’s population are Hindu.

In March, U.S.-based Universal Society of Hinduism president Rajan Zed was one of the first to protest the film when he said it “appears to be lampooning Hinduism.”

However, an official with India’s Central Board of Film Certification says they have yet to receive a formal ban request from any of the country’s Hindu groups.


Isn’t a comedy supposed to lampoon????
