Biopics are really in the trend for a long time now and to add one more to the list, there is going to be a biopic based on Nobel laureate Mother Teresa.

Written and directed by Seema Upadhyay, the film, announced on Monday, will have a cast of Indian and international actors.

The makers also 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 film.

Upadhyay said in a statement: “We visited the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata and the experience was surreal.”

“She is a global icon and we will ensure to leave no stone unturned to meet her international stature and pay our tribute to the noble soul. We hope we will do justice and will be able to spread the message for peace, love, and humanity that Mother Teresa stood for,” the producers said in a joint statement.
