Vidya Balan’s skin erupts in bathtub scene
Mumbai: Skin show is fraught with its own dangers for the actors, though it might be a delight for viewers. Vidya Balan found it the hard way when her skin developed rashes after shooting for a bath tub scene as an item girl in Ekta Kapoor’s produced “Dirty Picture”.
The incident occurred at Film City in Goregaon, where as part of the scene,Vidya entered a bathtub full of soap water with a towel but soon found her skin to be hardening on touching the water in the tub. Though she did not take it seriously in the beginning, Vidya had to abandon the shoot and rush to adermatologist, of course, after wearing clothes!
After the incident allegations and counter allegations flew around over the quality of water used in the bathtub. Sources in Balaji Motion Pictures, the producers of the movie, had claimed that mineral water was used in the tub. The sources also tried to give a clean chit to Director Milan Luthria saying that he was a meticulous person and would always ensure his stars the best facilities on the scene. The Dermatologist indicated that the soap might have had more alkali content than what the actress was used to and also that the bath tub was recently hand-painted which might have caused the rash on Vidya’s skin. The next schedule of shooting for the movie is slated for a few days later in Hyderabad and the producers and director are confident of the schedule going on without hassles
