Lindsay Lohan jetted from Los Angeles to India on Monday night (07Dec09) to shoot a hard-hitting new documentary about sex trafficking.
The troubled actress will spend a week in various areas of India shooting a low-key BBC investigation about the trafficking of women and children in the country.
A source tells Life & Style magazine, "Lindsay is trying to better herself and get away from her party-girl image. She wants to be taken more seriously."
Lindsay plans to continue her good deeds when she returns home next week (12Dec09) - she's planning a trip to select Los Angeles children’s hospitals, where she'll play Santa and hand out toys to sick kids.
