Mallika Sherawat's revealing clothes distract auto driver

Mallika Sherawat and Vivek Oberoi were shooting for a song in Mumbai which required them to travel in an auto rickshaw. But the sequence led to an unpleasant situation when Mallika's revealing outfit and hourglass figure got a little too much for the auto driver to handle.
The poor chap turned out to be a huge fan of hers and seemed totally overwhelmed by her presence in the back seat. And this resulted in him hardly being able to steer the three-wheeler as per the need of the scene.
Perhaps the driver just couldn't resist taking a peek into the rear view mirror to have a good look at his famous passenger and that proved to be quite risky. An insider from the set revealed, "Vivek and Mallika were shooting for a song sequence and we had arranged for an auto driver as well. For this particular shot, Mallika had worn some really racy clothes and that appeared to be the root cause of distraction. The driver just could not get the shot right. We had about 15 takes and at one point, he even almost bumped the vehicle into a nearby pole."
In the end, the crew had no option but to improvise. They altered the sequence a bit and got Vivek Oberoi to drive the rickshaw himself. The driver, unaffected by these developments, even confessed to Vivek that he'd find it hard to sleep at night at least for a couple of days.
