Celebritology reports that Paris Hilton recently made the short-list to play Mother Teresa in a film directed by T. Rajeevnath. Other publications report he is currently flying around the world working to convince Paris that she would be perfect for the role. Showbiz News reports:
The Asian moviemaker plans to make a film about the life of the late humanitarian. He will travel to the US from Asia armed with photos of the American socialite that have been altered to make her look like the saintly nun, who died in 1997.
He said: “The pictures will be my strength when I speak to Paris. She has expressed delight that I have short-listed her to play the role. This will make our meeting easier.”
Rajeevnath’s agents have reportedly got in touch with Hilton’s people, and a time and venue for the Stateside meeting will soon be arranged.
Paris Hilton, nor her agents, could be reached for comment at press time.
This would be Hilton’s first lead role. She has also appeared in The Cat in the Hat, House of Wax and the homemade XXX movie she made co-starring Rick Salomon, Hilton’s ex-lover.
Rajeevnath’s $11 million film about Mother Teresa will start filming early next year. Should Hilton play the lead role of Mother Teresa, it will mean a huge makeover for both herself and her film career.
