The first song of the film ‘Ghoomar’ hit the headlines within minutes of its release, and it currently has more than 18 lakh views on Youtube. While talking about this amazing song that features Deepika Padukone taking over 66 twirls, director Sanjay Leele Bhansali has been quoted by Bollywood Hungama as saying, “We wanted 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 our dance tribute to the brave Rajput women of Rajasthan.”
According to the BH report, the Ram Leela actor had spent 12 days for the rehersal of the number and she took 4 days for actualy performing it on camera.
