Would love to play Mother Teresa on screen: Jacqueline Fernandeztext_fields
Mumbai: If Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez had her way, she'd star in a biopic on Mother Teresa, the Nobel prize winner who devoted her life to the old, the abandoned and the ailing.
At an event to promote her recently released film "Roy", when Jacqueline was asked about doing a biopic, she said: "If I have to do a biopic then I would love to play Mother Teresa."
"It would be very interesting...because I'll get to learn a lot about her and I do think that she was a very important figure in Indian history," she added.
Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic religious sister who founded Missionaries of Charity to offer free services to the poor, children and needy. She went out of her way to help the destitutes and starving people. She was beatified in 2003 as "Blessed Teresa of Calcutta". A second miracle credited to her is now required before she can be recognised as a saint.
