Over 40 children saved so far, within one day’s work… Doing THIS is a life worth living. ...Oh, and I’m talking about being in India,” tweeted Lindsay Lohan two days ago.
As it turns out now, the singer-actress’s aim to change her wild party girl image by indulging in ‘meaningful causes’ has backfired terribly. Bachpan Bachao Andolan, the Delhi based NGO, for which Lohan claimed to have ‘saved 40 kids,’ is now threatening to sue her, claiming it got to know about her dramatic ‘accomplishment’ only from TV channels. “We saw on TV that Lindsay Lohan is in India, and has claimed to save so many children within four hours for our Mukti Punarvaas Kendra in Delhi,” says a bewildered Bhuvan Ribhu, national secretary, Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) to HT City.
Tabloids in US carried stories doubting the actress’ sudden interest in charity on Thursday, after Lohan tweeted constantly about her involvement in the cause of children trafficking in India. Soon afterwards, an apprehensive Lohan removed all the related posts from her Twitter.
Rubbishing reports that Lohan was visiting India on BBA’s invitation, Ribhu said, “She was here for a BBC film. They had just sought permission to visit one of our centers. And here she goes claiming that she saved 40 children. I wonder if she even knows what human trafficking is?” According to Ribhu, the children were rescued on Tuesday, before Lohan even arrived in India. “We’re contemplating legal action against her for misrepresentation of facts, breach of trust and plagiarism of cause,” he said.
Meanwhile, sources from Hotel Taj Bengal in Kolkata, where she had been staying earlier, shared that Lohan extensively used the health club and spa and also had a massage therapist at her disposal round the clock.
