Call her the perfect amalgamation of traditional and modern, Deepika Padukone can slip into any avatar with much ease. So after she turned huntress Serena Unger in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Deepika will now get into a signature Sanjay Leela Bhansali character in her next project, Padmavati. And that’s not all. She will shed smoky eyes and body suits of her Hollywood debut, and don a heavy lehenga with Rajasthani ornaments for Bhansali’s magnum opus. Wait, we have more. Deepika will begin shooting for Padmavati with a traditional ghoomar dance number.

Bhansali is known to incorporate lavish and elaborate dances in all his film. And with larger than life sets and near-perfect detailing of the era gone by, every song becomes a mirror of history on the big screen. Deepika’s earlier numbers in Ram-Leela (Nagada Sang) and Bajirao Mastani (Deewani Mastani) are still as fresh in our minds. We do not doubt that even Padmavati will only add to this chartbuster list of songs.
