Some of the words of Deepika Padukone’s item song in the film Dum Maro Dum appear to be objectionable.
Some item songs are plain raunchy. Some go further and border on being outright indecent with words that are sure to raise brows. A ‘Munni’ going zandu balm for her darling or a ‘Sheila’ flaunting her jawani may not fall in the category of being vulgar, but the words of Deepika’s item song in Dum Maro Dum are bawdy, to say the least.
From what we hear, this is how the song’s lyrics go:
Hey...kya phir dekh raha hai,
Aaj aankhen sek raha hai
kal haath sekega,
Aaj dheel chhod raha hai,
kal khud hi tokega,
Aaj mere liye chair kheech raha hai
kal meri skirt kheechega,
Kheechega ki nahi?
Apparently, Deepika was also not happy with the lyrics of the song, but when she came to know of its context in the plot, she gave in and did the item. She even got a removable cobra tattoo on her midriff with the words ‘Dum Maro Dum’ written in Hindi.
