Paris Hilton may play Mother Teresa
I don’t usually get news from southern India, but what the hell. Bollywood director T. Rajeevnath, scouting for a suitable actress to play the title role in his film on Nobel Peace laureate Mother Teresa, has sent feelers to Paris Hilton. “My agents in California have contacted Paris Hilton,” Rajeevnath said.
The director said he was impressed when he read a report sometime ago in which the hotel heiress said she had refused to pose nude in Playboy magazine and decided then to shortlist her. “Although there are several actresses willing to play the role of Mother Teresa, the most widely respected and loved person, the history of the actress who is finally chosen for the role would have to be analysed thoroughly before she is chosen,” said Rajeevnath. Rajeevnath expects to get the blessings of the Pope for the film.
Hmmm. Well this would be an interesting casting choice. Kinda like casting Jackie Chan as Jesus. I don’t know what the plus side of having Paris would be, unless Mother Teresa’s going to be naked most of the movie. Which might make the whole canonization process a bit awkward.
Thanks to Roxxe for the tip.
