DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN? 1. Director Mahesh Bhatt offered the lead role in his upcoming film Jism 2 to adult movie actress Sunny Leone.

2. Comedian Russell Peters cast former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson as the Virgin Mary in his Christmas special, saying “come on, give the chick a break already.”

3. Director Aditya Chopra offered a role in his next movie to Aishwarya Rai’s baby daughter.

4. A Vatican priest called yoga “the devil’s work.”

5. Harvard University dropped two economics courses taught by Indian politician Subramanian Swamy.



(1, 2, 4, and 5 really happened.)
