Mumbai: Deepika Padukone gets unusual gifts from fans. Feels it is a reaction to her raunchy item number, Deepika Padukone gets fan mail delivered to her house on a daily basis.

Most of it consists of soft toys, chocolates and greeting cards from fans professing their love for her.

However, this time when she returned from her ‘Aarakshan’ shoot in Bhopal, the actress was shocked to see nine skirts sent to her!

This is the first time she has got such gifts. A source reveals, "Usually her fan mail is kept in a separate room. So whenever she comes back from outdoor shoots, she personally sits and reads through each one. There are times when she's replied to her fan's letters as well. But nothing prepared her for nine skirts!"

The lengths of the skirts vary. "Some are extremely long, while others are short.  She feels these are reactions to her “Dum Maro Dum” item number.

While some fans might have liked her sexy look, others want her covered up. The lyrics in the song also refer to the skirt (Aaj mere liye chair khich raha hai, kal meri skirt khichega. Khichega ki nahi?).Deepika reacts, "I've just come home. It has just hit me, it's all because of Dum Maaro Dum."
