Padmavati is easily the most-talked about upcoming movie this year, thanks to the gargantuan, Lord of Padmavati has been in news ever since it went on floors. Despite facing the wrath of Karni Sena, this Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial received applause when its appealing trailer released sometime back. Starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, it is no doubt, the most-talked about movie this year, thanks to the grandeur and high expectations. In the trailer we saw how the typical SLB opulence came to fore, along with breathtaking visual effects and epic battle shots.

The film is based on Rani Padmini, the legendary Rajput queen of the kingdom of Chittorgarh, to be played by Deepika. It also features Shahid as her husband, king Rawal Ratan Singh, and probably the most impressive of them all – the invader Alauddin Khilji, essayed with sheer ferocity by Ranveer.

Padmavati’s first song, titled “Ghoomar” is going to be released today and knowing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s track-record, it is going to be a delight with lovely music and visuals. The title makes it obvious that the song will feature a Ghoomar dance, a perfect reminder to Deepika’s song “Nagada” from Ram-Leela. According to a picture shared by Shahid, the song will be picturised on the two actors.

Ghoomar is a famous traditional dance form prevalent among Rajput women in Rajasthan even today. As a promotional strategy, the makers of Padmavati are tweeting interesting facts about Ghoomar.

One fact said, “Ghoomar is a dance form performed by Rajput women on all auspicious occasions.” Rajputs are known for their rich culture and royal heritage and their folk dance form Ghoomar is famous in the whole world. It is performed typically by veiled women. Another fact posted by Padmavati makers said, “Ghoomar is also traditionally performed by the new bride when she is welcomed in her marital home.”

Check out all the interesting things tweeted by the team of Padmavati ahead of the release of song “Ghoomar”.

Some fan pages have also shared Deepika Padukone’s look from the song “Ghoomar” and we cannot keep calm.


Ghoomar’s name derives from the Hindi word ‘Ghoomna’ which literally means twirling and flowing dresses of Rajasthani women help make the dance quite a visual treat and striking to watch. We are expecting the same from this Padmavati track, given the expertise of maverick SLB.
