And of course the Hindu Gods can't let the donkeys have all the fun interrupting filming; traditional prayers were held before the start of the India portion of the production, and the Swami in charge bestowed new Hindu names on Julia's three children: "'I have named her twins Hazel and Phinnaeus as Laxmi and Ganesh, while Henry will be called Krishna Balram', he was quoted as saying."
Roberts and her clan won't be staying in a basic needs-only Ashram as her character does in the film however; Julia is shacked up in a former palace-turned-heritage hotel, of course. No doubt they will offer Eat, Pray, Love specials when filming moves on to their next locations of Rome and Bali.
