Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio will be flying to Delhi this month, to profile Sunita Narain, Director, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), for a documentary film on climate change, reported The Indian Express.

The untitled film, which is yet to be announced, will “explore the crisis of our time in a way that has never been done before”.

The report states, "Having launched conservation projects in 40-odd countries through his foundation, the billionaire star and UN messenger of peace on climate change now asks, 'how far into the future we may have ****ed ourselves already, and how much time we have to find solutions and put them in place before this whole ecosystem collapses'."

DiCaprio, along with his crew, is expected to arrive in Delhi on October 29 and they are likely to stay in India for four days.

Quoting sources in the Ministry of External Affairs, the report states that the government has cleared the application for filming. The film will be made by Insurgent Media in association with Diamond Docs and Appian Way, according to the application.

Sunita Narain told The Indian Express, "I have been in touch with the film makers for the past year about their plans to make a film on climate change. They wanted me to particularly talk about our concerns about the need for ambition and equity in climate negotiations. They have just informed me that they will be in Delhi on 29 and 30th and will come over to CSE for a sit down interview."
