Bollywood pin-ups Aishwarya Rai, BIPASHA BASU and RIMII SEN are so concerned about offending Indian fans with the risque swimming costumes they'll wear in new movie DHOOM II, they've insisted on early dress rehearsals.

Director Aditya Chopra has "stringent contracts" with his modest leading ladies stipulating just how brief their costumes can be, according to newspaper the Times of India.

And the movie-maker has agreed to let his stars try on their costumes ahead of beach scenes in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil next month (MAR06), so there won't be any drama on the set.
