Deepika's hot skirt to help Salman's charity

More than Deepika Padukone’s item number, ‘Dum Maro Dum’, she grabbed the headlines for her sexy attire that she has donned in the song. Now the makers have decided to auction Deepika’s skirt designed by Anahita Shroff Adjania online. What basically making the headlines is that the auctioned money will go to Salman Khan’s charity, ‘Being Human’.

What catches interest is that the lead actor of ‘Dum Maro Dum’ Abhishek Bachchan is Salman's ex-flame, Aishwarya’s husband.

Says a source, "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."

Why Deepika's skirt? "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."
