The Love Guru has not received a warm welcome from some Hindu groups, who reportedly have requested that India's Central Board of Film Certification and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ban screenings of the Mike Myers comedy in India.

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.”

“We have officially not received any request from any Hindu organization regarding The Love Guru,” a spokesperson at the Mumbai-based Central Board of Film Certification said.
