I find your view to be false, but prove it I cannot.
Maybe someone has access to the statistics on how many have read or know about the Bhagavad Gita. And let us remember the Mahabharat (TV Series) aired in India in 1988-1990.

Subject: Theos-World Condition of Hindus in India
Gita has size of just around 2 % of the Bible. From my observation of Indian people, I find that 98% Hindus in India have never read Gita even once in their entire lives. Other books like Vedas and Upanishads, being in Sanskrit are neither understood, nor read, by anybody except very very few individuals.
That makes me think how can Hindu religion transform people's hearts, when nobody is interested in Hindu religious text.
When I observe Christians in India, I find that many of them have at least some idea of what is written in Bible.
