Mike Myers Film Sparks Outrage March 31, 2008 A seemingly perfect couple along with their equally perfect teenagers, move into an upscale gated community. The Joneses have better goods and game than any other family in town. The only problem is they’re not a family — they are employees of a stealth marketing organization, and they know how to make everyone else want what they’ve got. Actor Mike Myers has sparked controversy in Hindu communities for “lampooning” the religion in his new movie ‘The Love Guru’. Myers plays Guru Pitka in the upcoming film and repeats the mantra of Mariska Hargitay – inspired by the American actress – as his calming technique. Hindu leader Rajan Zed has accused Myers of stereotyping the culture, adding the movie appears to be lampooning Hinduism and Hindus. “A spokesman for the film said, “Love Guru, which is not yet complete, is a satire created in the same spirit as Austin Powers. It is our full intention to screen the film for Rajan Zed and other Hindu leaders once it is ready.” TIDBIT: Myers has said his favorite character to play in the Austin Powers movies is Dr. Evil. His least favorite to play is Fat Bastard.
