Wild Guess: Bollywood Hero Will Offend South Asians Everywhere

I'm thinking Chris Kattan is standing on a soap box right now, cause those lovely South Asian ladies gotta be at least 5'3".

I'm thinking Chris Kattan is standing on a soap box right now, cause those lovely South Asian ladies gotta be at least 5'3".

First it was The Love Guru by SNL alum Mike Meyers. And now 1/2 of Night at the Roxbury/100% of Mango, Chris Kattan is doing a 3-part mini-series playing himself. Fed up with Hollywood, he moves to India to make a movie and cliche it up. This show is not going to leave any of the White-man-can-do-it-better-than-a-South-Asian cliches behind (they even mention Mr. Miyagi in the damn description from the Independent Film Channel website!):

“In his quest to become Bollywood’s leading man, Chris unexpectedly finds a great dance instructor (part Patrick Swayze, part Mr. Miyagi), trawls India’s countryside for his leading lady, falls in love, and ultimately fulfills dreams he never even imagined. Facing culture clashes, language barriers and complex dance moves, Kattan will stop at nothing to conquer his destiny.”

Do they have to mention DESTINY every time it involves a White man traveling to Asia to “Find Himself” some ass? But who knows, this movie might surprise us and be a great showcase for some amazing Bollywood actors and not be offensive at all. Tune in to IFC August 6, 7, and 8 at 10PM to find out…
