Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone who is looking hot in the ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ title track in a tiny mini skirt is being used to raise charity funds for Salman Khan’s charity.
DP’s skirt will go in an online auction and the funds gathered from its sale will be forwarded to Salman Khan`s NGO Being Human.
A source said to a daily, "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."
But why Deepika`s skirt as the choice for auction? "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," reveals the source.
Rohan Sippy says, "We are all surprised by the reaction to Deepika`s look in the track. We decided to auction it for charity." Anushka Manchanda has crooned for the DMD title track Mit Jaaye Gham song that Pritam Chakraborthy composed.
Well, however controversial the stars and their relationships are it’s a great effort towards promoting charity we would say! Kudos!
