Vikram Gandhi with Stephen Colbert

Could Vikram Gandhi be the brown answer to Sacha Baron Cohen? He’s not as snarky or cheesy as SBC—and his beard is real. But in his newly released documentary the New Jersey native manages to do what is probably every brown guy’s dream punk scenario—pretend to be an enlightened Indian guru, fool Americans into following him and film the hilarious outcome.

The concept might seem reminiscent of Jimi Mistri’s The Guru but, in an interview on The Colbert Show Gandhi said that he wanted to show people that they don’t need his character or anyone else in order gain spiritual fulfillment.
