Bollywood has a new fad. That of getting henna tattoos. After actors Shah Rukh Khan and Kangna Ranaut, it is Deepika Padukone who has got herself one, on her waist, which reads, Dum Maro Dum.

Deepika’s tattoo is for her a hot item number in Rohan Sippy’s forthcoming film by the same name. Sippy had briefed choreographer Bosco to ensure that it was the hottest number this year, and conveyed the same to Padukone, too.

Bosco says, “We certainly want the track to reach at least the level set by Munni and Sheila.” All those who have had a dekko of it say Padukone’s song has a heady mix of sex and drugs in the lyrics.

Shah Rukh Khan would be seen flaunting his henna tattoo in Don2. It is, in fact, the letter ‘D’ inked on his right arm. “We wanted to do something different with Don this time, so Don2 will see me sporting this tattoo,” he says.

Ranaut has got a henna tattoo for her upcoming film, Tanu Weds Manu. In the film, her character Tanu gets her boyfriend’s name (Awasthi) tattooed on her chest. The actor sported a henna tattoo for nearly three months while shooting. “I had to get it re-touched a few times to maintain the continuity,” she says, adding that she has vowed to get a permanent tattoo at the same place when she finds her Mr Right in real life.
