Lindsay Lohan reportedly left Los Angeles Monday night to film a BBC documentary in India, according to Page Six.
While on the red carpet at the 3rd Annual Rock the Kasbah Fundraising Gala at Vibiana in Los Angeles on Oct. 26, Lindsay told one camera crew about her plans to do the documentary. At that time they were still working out the dates, but she thought she would go before Thanksgiving.
“It all happened actually when I was in Dubai. I like to support charities. I think it’s important to have a voice when you do have one and you can make a difference,” Lindsay told a camera crew during the 3rd Annual Rock the Kasbah Fundraising Gala. “It’s on the trafficking of children and women in India.”
Lindsay says she was inspired by Richard Branson, the billionaire businessman who hosted the Virgin Unite even (Rock the Kasbah) which benefits the Eve Branson Foundation.
“I am a very big fan of the things that Richard Branson does,” Lindsay said. “I met him in Dubai (at the opening of the Atlantis, The Palm in December 2008, I guess). I really respect that he incorporates charity in all that he does.”
Lindsay said it will be worth it because it’s a good cause.
“I think that if you are in a position where you can say something people will listen to and make a difference — no matter what else gets said because I know I deal with that more than most people at this point — I think you should use it,” Lindsay said during the Rock the Kasbah event. “I think you should use your voice for the right reason. There’s no reason you shouldn’t. That’s what validates you at the end of the day. That when you get home and ‘oh, wow, I did something really good today. I feel good about myself’ no matter what – anything that happens. That’s what settles in.
According to Page Six, an inside source said:
“She is excited about escaping the drama of LA and doing something real.”
