Guru Ram Rahim Made Zany Action Movies Starring Himself (And Is In Prison For Murder And Rape)
The humbly named Dr. Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was an Indian all-faith guru who gained millions of followers through his simple teachings about peace, humility, and asceticism. And the way he brought that message to the masses was by riding around on a massive motor-trike and producing ridiculous action movies based on his teachings.

Since 2015, the Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS) sect has produced five action-packed feature films, all written, directed, and edited by Ram Rahim, who also starred. Each one conveys a part of his teachings, and they're all really bad. They make Kirk Cameron's religious schlock look like Oscar contenders. In the third installment of his Messenger saga, MSG: The Warrior Lion Heart (which also stars his daughter), Rahim teaches his followers about the dignity of womenfolk by way of fighting hundreds of Daft Punk spandex aliens -- a passage we have a hard time finding in our copies of the Vedas.
Speaking of the treatment of women, in 2017, Ram Rahim prematurely ended his messianic filmmaking career after being arrested on several counts of rape and one count of murder. According to the prosecution, 50 of Rahim's former female followers stepped forward to accuse him of sexual abuse. When a reporter tried to investigate these and other criminal activities inside the cult, their enlightened leader had him murdered in front of his home. On a lighter note, Rahim also performs on the soundtrack of his movies, has released several albums under Universal's music label, and his hit, "Love Charger," was featured on The Tonight Show.
