An official biopic on Nobel laureate Mother Teresa was announced on Monday. Written and directed by Seema Upadhyay, the film will have a cast of Indian and international actors.
It will be produced by Pradeep Sharma, Nitin Manmohan, Girish Johar and Prachi Manmohan.
The makers met Sister Prema Mary Pierick, the current Superior General of the Missionaries of Charity, and Sister Lynne in Kolkata recently to seek their blessings for the project on the life of the iconic nun who came from Albania to India in 1929 and set up the Missionaries of Charity in 1948.
Upadhyay said in a statement: "We visited the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata and the experience was surreal."
The producers are delighted about bringing together a film on Mother Teresa, who is known to the entire world for her nobility and charity.
