Leonardo DiCaprio to be in Delhi in October to prep for a documentary film

The government has cleared the application for filming of documentary film based on climate change

Mumbai: Leonardo DiCaprio will be in Delhi this month, to profile Sunita Narain of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) for an untitled, yet-to-be-announced documentary film. The documentary will be based on climate change and will explore the crisis in a way never witnessed before.

According to a report in Indian Express, Leonardo and crew are expected in Delhi on October 29 for four days. The government has already cleared the application for filming. As 'The Revenant', a pre-Industrial Revolution period drama set in the wilderness of northern Canada is ready for release in December, the actor can solely focus on new project.

This will be DiCaprio's second documentary on the subject, after 2007's The 11th Hour, which he created, produced, and narrated. New York-based Insurgent Media, one of the producers of the film, stated in its application to the Ministry of External Affairs: "Our focus will be Narain’s work establishing the principle of equity in the framework convention on climate change.”

Leonardo is famously passionate about environmental conversation and the adverse effects of global warming. The actor, who started the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998 “with the mission of protecting the world’s last wild places”, has been funding and implementing a slew of conservation projects across the world — from saving key species like sharks, tigers and elephants to protecting indigenous tribes and communities.
