'The Love Guru' set to release amid Hindu controversy
$62-million Paramount Pictures movie "Love Guru" by Mike Myers is set to release June 20 amid a controversy over its 'lampooning Hinduism'. According to reports, comedy 'The Love Guru' has been inspired by the best-selling author and spiritual teacher Deepak Chopra, who also makes a cameo appearance in the film. But a self-proclaimed Hindu activist Rajan Zed is determined not to let it go without a fuss. Deepak Chopra termed Zed's campaign "a cry for importance". "It's a sign that your faith has become a cover up for all your insecurities because you can't even take a joke," Chopra said.
