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. This extremely difficult performance art takes years to learn, but Deepika had to pick up the steps within a matter of days. With a myriad of gracefulness and a royal poise, the song has been shot keeping true to the traditional Rajputana folk dance form.

Sources reveal that Deepika did over 66 twirls while shooting for the song. Adding to the difficult dance form that includes twists and twirls, Deepika had to do the dance in an extravagant costume and adorned in heavy jewelry.

Commenting on Ghoomar, Deepika said, “The Ghoomar Song has been one of the most difficult song sequences that Sanjay Sir and I have shot for. His vision can be seen in the grandiose of the set and the immense hard work we’ve all put into making it. I had started preparing for this film and character for several months before we actually started filming. But it was for The Ghoomar Song that I walked onto the set as ‘Padmavati’ for the very first time. The shooting of Padmavati began with The Ghoomar Song and I will never forget that day. I remember approaching my mark for the first shot and suddenly I felt a chill run through my body. It was almost as if Padmavati‘s soul had entered my body. That feeling still lingers and will continue for years to come.”

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. Here's the trailer
