The skimpy skirt donned by Deepika Padukone in her sizzling item number Dum Maaro Dum will be auctioned for Salman Khan's NGO Being Human.
It was director Rohan Sippy's brainchild to auction the mini skirt for Being Human. "Producer-director Rohan Sippy came up with the idea of auctioning the skirt online through the film's official website, with support being provided by a portal that auctions film memorabilia. The beneficiary was discussed and the choice was unanimous- Being Human. They feel it has been involved in some exceptional charity work," a source told Mid Day.
After the song being a big hit, Deepika's sexy skirt is in huge demand. "While on a nationwide tour, the DMD team is discovering that while the track itself is being criticised, there is great excitement over the costume that Deepika wears in the music video. There is a huge demand for it," added the source.
Sippy confirmed the news. "We are all surprised by the reaction to Deepika's look in the track. We decided to auction it for charity," he told the tabloid.
Anahita Shroff Adjania, who has designed Deepika's alluring look, enlightened us about it. "We wanted today's girl at a rave- barefoot, dancing on the sand, wearing anklets and a white dress. Deepika's blouse is made of stretch lycra, looks like a choli and is cut in such a way that the back looks bare. The skirt moves like a subtle shimmer as there are pieces of metal sheeting in it along with chiffon and is attached to a leather band. Inside, she's wearing tiny sequined hotpants cut very high. She has a tattoo and feathers in her hair to give her a beach-grunge look," she informed the tabloid.
