amal Haasan, Mohanlal and Paris Hilton in the same movie?

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Well known Malayalam 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 American actress Paris Hilton.

"My agents in California have contacted Paris Hilton," Rajeevnath told IANS.

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.

The English film will be mostly shot in West Bengal and in several foreign countries.

"The preliminary script has been readied with help from scriptwriter John Paul," the director said.

Rajeevnath, 54, has won a national award for direction, besides quite a few international awards. His popular films include "Moksham", "Janani" and "Thannal".

"Mother Teresa" will be his 11th commercial film and he has already sold this idea to a few international production houses including the US-based First Serve International.

"I am leaving for the US early next month to finalise the producer. A few production houses have evinced interest in producing this film. The budget is expected to be in the range of Rs.500 million to Rs.600 million," he said.

"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.

"All those whom I have contacted have agreed to do their bit to help me in this film. The cast includes Mithun Chakravarthy, Kamal Haasan, Mohanlal and several others. Veteran cameraman Santosh Sivan has also been roped in. The Ramoji Rao Film city has pledged full support for the venture," added the veteran director.

Among the specialties of the film would be the character of former West Bengal chief minister Jyoti Basu, whose association with Mother Teresa is well known.

"The proceeds of the film would go to the Missionaries of Charity. By June this year, the groundwork for the film would be complete and I propose to begin shooting in early 2007," said the director.

Rajeevnath expects to get the blessings of the Pope for the film and also hopes to sign in sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar as music director.

If Paris Hilton were to play Mother Theresa in film it may just be the biggest insult ever.
Next they should try to get George Dubya to play Ghandi.

This is just grand. If it's not BS, then I really want to see this film.

No one wants to see a film about a wizzened old nun helping lepers. We want to see Paris Hilton helping lepers!

Imagine the scenes! It'd be like A Simple Life: Mother Teresa. Come back with me now to a time when she was still young, just sister Theresa...

Teresa and her sidekick, Sister Nicole, are given their first assignment as nuns - bathing lepers. Ohh, the hijinks!

"Umm, so can I give you a hand? Haw haw."

"Theresa, this is sooooo gross.. here, we can fake it - just spray water on them... they're all kinda green anyway so who knows if they're clean or dirty?"

"Cool. This is so not hot."

It's totally press time by the director.

This guy belongs to the South Indian movie industry. Making movies in languages like Tamil, Malayalam etc. The languages spoken in the South of the country.

While it's a large industry, it's gets no where near the revenue, funding, publicity that the Bollywood movie industry (making films in Hindi which is a North Indian language but spoken throughout the country) Even losing a lot of native Southerners to Bollywood (Aishwarya Rai for example is a South Indian originally)

So it's not uncommon for directors in the South make some fairly out there comments to try to drum up interest. Or release press statements claiming they have an all star cast assembled...only to see the big stars drop out one by one due to scheduling conflicts etc.
