She has recently been maintaining a tight schedule over her grand upcoming film, “The Dirty Picture”.
“Vidya’s parents took her for a check-up because she had been complaining of dizziness and fatigue for quite a while. A series of tests were conducted, which revealed her haemoglobin count was below the acceptable level. The doctors advised her to check into a hospital and she was immediately put on drip,” a source at the hospital said.
A seven-day rest could throw the last period of shooting for “The Dirty Picture” into panic. Plus, she has another film, Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani, coming up in January, which could also be affected. The makers of both the films have, however, said that they will happily wait.
Though shooting of about a week remains for “The Dirty Picture”, after which post-production follows, producer Ekta Kapoor and director Milan Luthria are confident the film will be ready on time for its December release.
