Deepika Padukone starrer Padmaavat was an absolute hit with audiences long before the movie was released.
The starlet, reportedly, began filming with the performance of Ghoomar. This after receiving tutelage under the guidance of Jyothi D Tommaar, assistant director and trustee of Gangaur Ghoomar Dance Academy.
“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.”Deepika Padukone
We wanted the ‘Ghoomar’ to retain its purity since this was being performed by Rani Padmavati. Every step and every move in the dance form celebrates the royal grace of royalty. This is a dance tribute to the brave Rajput women of Rajasthan, said Sanjay Leela Bhansali, director of Padmaavat.
