Lindsay 'a changed woman' after India, despite controversy.

Lindsay Lohan has returned from India “a changed woman,” her mother Dina Lohan says.

Dina Lohan told the New York Post that Lindsay was "humbled and moved" by what she saw while filming a BBC documentary about human trafficking there.

Lohan was working on a film for BBC 3 TV about the abuse of women and girls. As per usual with Lohan, the trip was not without controversy. At one point she wrote on her twitter site: "Over 40 children saved so far, within one day's work. This is what life is about . . . Doing THIS is a life worth living!!! Oh, and I'm talking about being in India," according to the Guardian.

But her statements angered locals, mainly because the Indian charity that carried out the raid, Bachpan Bachao, said Lohan was not there at the time.

"She was not even in the country when this raid happened," a local social activist going by the name Bhuwan told the British paper the Daily Telegraph.

"We'll be complaining to the BBC and talking to our lawyers ... Would Lohan know where these workshops are?"

Another anti-trafficking campaigner said to the paper: "If celebrities do it to get publicity then they are trivialising child-trafficking."

Lohan has now removed the offending tweets from her Twitter feed. Her comments for that period in India say only, “The BBA [bachpan bachao andolan] does amazing work and I thank them for it! Glad to be with people for all of the aftermath :)” She also tweeted “The most amazing time of my life.”

Lohan now has further plans for participating in aidwork. "Lindsay definitely wants to give more back," her mother told the Post. We are now planning a trip to help the children of Guatemala – which will be filmed by Oprah's network."
