Deepika Padukone is Mesmerizing in Ghoomar from Padmavati

Finally the first song Ghoomar from epic historic drama Padmavati is out! The song is visually stunning and nothing short of an ode to the rich culture of Rajasthan.

T-series released the song on social media with the caption, “A tribute to the land of culture & traditions, Rajasthan. #Ghoomar out now @deepikapadukone #Padmavati”

Deepika Padukone takes up the most challenging dance form to date with Ghoomar from Padmavati. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has left no stone unturned in making Ghoomar the most riveting song sequence ever shot.

Deepika learned the dance form under the tutelage of renowned Ghoomar expert Jyothi D Tommaar, assistant director of the only authentic Ghoomar academy. The song is choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya and sung in the soulful voice of Shreya Ghoshal, with music by the maestro Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

A traditional dance form of Rajput women, the routine involves twirling in circles, leaving the onlookers enchanted and mesmerized by the beautiful dance performance. An extremely difficult performance art that takes years to learn, Deepika had to pick up the steps within a matter of days. With myriad of gracefulness and a royal poise, the song was shot keeping true to the traditional Rajputana folk dance form.

Starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is all set for a worldwide release on the 1st December 2017.
