Description: Ramu Gupta, a young Indian dance teacher with the best moves in Delhi embarks for New York City in pursuit of fame and fortune--only to wind up working as a waiter in an Indian restaurant. However, good fortune can arise from strange places; Ramu discovers this when a catering gig at a ditzy socialite's birthday party catapults him into an extravagant version of the American dream. Mistaken for a spiritual healer, Ramu becomes an overnight celebrity with the city's elite hanging on to his every word--no matter how absurd. The trouble is, he is also falling in love with Sharonna, an adult film star, who is the one woman who knows the real source of his seemingly profound insights. Ramu soon finds that he must choose between his newfound notoriety, and his love for a woman who accepts him as he is--unconditionally.
