Vidya Balan didn’t have the best day while shooting for Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Dirty Picture’ recently. She plays Silk Smita in the biopic and has been quite excited about the role, saying, "Silk was made to give Indian men sleepless nights! She doesn’t leave much to the imagination. Silk is every woman’s wild side and yet she’s soft where it matters. She was spunky, yet she can shock you with a straight face.” Well, it was Vidya who was shocked at the shoot of the movie, and this is what happened.
The scene, being shot at Mumbai’s Film City, required a towel-wrapped Vidya to step into a bathtub that was filled with soapy water. Apparently, the star’s skin began to feel itchy soon after she got in, and in some time, she had a vicious red rash rapidly spreading all over her body.
It was, supposedly, an allergic reaction that led to Vidya being rushed to a doctor and the shoot being cancelled.
Reportedly, Vidya’s still recovering but is expected to be fine before the movie’s next schedule begins in Hyderabad.
