Padmavati: Deepika Padukone perfectly twirls in the ‘Ghoomar’ song


The first song from ‘Padmavati’ was released on net and it showed Deepika Padukone nailed as the character of the Rajput princess and she excels in the body movement. She reportedly delivered over 66 twirls in the ‘Ghoomar’ song.

"The routine involves twirling in circles with perfectly co-ordinated hand movements and footwork," explained Padmavati's official Twitter handle.

Deepika Padukone tweeted about his song# The Ghoomar Song has to be one of the most difficult yet most fulfilling song sequences i have ever shot for! #GhoomarToday@FilmPadmavati

In fact, the song is a traditional Rajasthani song and it took 40 days and over 100 people to create the setup for the traditional number at the replica of Chittorgarh Fort.

The film also features Ranveer Singh as invader Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh in lead roles while Deepika Padukone essays the role of Rani Padmavati. Bhansali has composed the song that has been penned by A M Turaz and Rajasthani Lyrics by Swaroop Khan. Shreya Ghoshal has lent her voice to the song.

Talking about the Ghoomar song, Deepika had said earlier, “I started preparing for this film and character several months before we started filming. But it was for the Ghoomar song [sequence] that I walked onto the set as Padmavati for the first time.”

It has been almost a spiritual experience for the actor. She told Hindustan Times, “The shooting of the film began with this song, and I’ll never forget that day. I remember approaching my mark for the first shot. It was almost as if Padmavati’s soul had entered my body. I could feel her presence; and, in fact, I still do. It’s one of those rare moments in an actor’s life where it’s going to take a very long time before it actually leaves the system.”

Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, ‘Padmavati’ is set to release worldwide on December 1.
