Actress KATE WINSLET has laughed off reports that she is to play MOTHER TERESA in an Indian film about the nun's life.
Indian media reported that the TITANIC (1997) star had been lined up to play the Roman Catholic nun in a feature film to be directed by RAJIV NATH.
But Winslet's American spokeswoman said she knew nothing about the film and had no idea where the reports had come from.
She says Winslet, who has just finished playing author IRIS MURDOCH in IRIS (2001), may appear in a second film opposite OSCAR-winning Australian actor GEOFFREY RUSH.
The spokeswoman says Winslet was in discussions to star in MAGICIAN'S WIFE, the, due to start filming in September (01). (RP/WNWCXX/KMW)
