Lara Dutta had to undergo a special skin treatment exercise yesterday which lasted over four hours to get rid of the tan she acquired in Bahamas, while shooting for Blue. The Blue schedule lasted for over a month. By the time it ended, Lara's complexion turned a deep burnt brown. She had to get rid of it before shooting for her other films like Billoo Barber and Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai, so she went for a special de-tanning procedure.
Talking about it, Lara says, "It's a basic skin facial to remove the tan. The treatment was to get my normal skin tone back. It's a long procedure and took over four hours." Besides the shooting in the Bahamas, which was mainly outdoors, the actress also spent time shopping but not for clothes. "I bought some really cool diving gear as I am a professional scuba diver now."
The actress reveals that she'd always been afraid of water, and couldn't even swim, and had to learn it for the part, "I was nervous but extremely thrilled to be in the water. Thankfully, there were no accidents in my case. I had already got over my fears before starting the shoot for Blue. Working with dolphins and marine wildlife was the most outstanding experience! The first schedule was fantastic. The crew nicknamed me Megan Fox as she's been voted the sexiest woman alive and I am looking too hot in Blue!" Lara laughs.
