.- An Indian movie director said he hopes to persuade Paris Hilton to play the role of Mother Teresa in an upcoming film.
Director T. Rajeevnath told AFP that Hilton made a casting shortlist after a computer-generated image showed a close facial match between the hotel heiress and the nun. A meeting with Hilton is scheduled for the end of April, said the 54-year-old director.
Rajeevnath is well known in India for his Malayalam-language films, including award-winning "Janani", the story of seven nuns who care for an abandoned baby.
Hilton's prior movie experience includes a homemade sex video, which appeared on the Internet, and a starring role in the reality TV series “The Simple Life.”
