Hilton's nun meeting
13:30 03 April 2006
Indian director T. Rajeevnath is to fly half way around the world to convince Paris Hilton to play Mother Theresa.
The Asian moviemaker is to travel to the US armed with photos of the socialite mocked-up to make her look like the saintly nun, who died in 1997.
He said: "The pictures will be my strength when I speak to her. 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 representatives, and a time and venue for the Stateside meeting will be arranged soon.
Hilton has appeared in a number of movies, including teen horror 'House of Wax'.
But so far she is best known for a notorious homemade sex tape of her romping with ex-lover, Rick Salomon.
Playing Albanian-born Mother Theresa will be Hilton's first lead role.
The $11 million movie is due to begin filming early next year.
