New Delhi, Oct 26: Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming movie, Padmavati has set the fire before its release already! There is no doubt that versatile Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone is dominating the internet with her first song from the movie, Ghoomar. In no time did it receive 8.5 million views on Youtube in just less than 24 hours.
The preparation of the song included rigorous training for the Rajasthani dance form, under expert Jyothi D Tommamar. The song is therefore, choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya and sung by none other than, Shreya Ghosal with music by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. According to the reports, Deepika did about 66 twirls while shooting for the song. Not only this, the Rimple Narula lehenga weighed around 30 kg that costed near about Rs 30 lakh!
According to Tanishq, the company moulded 400 kg of gold with more than 200 craftsmen that worked for 600 days for Padmavati. Earlier in a media interview, Deepika had stated “The Ghoomar song has been one of the most difficult song sequences that Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) 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 set as Padmavati for the very first time. The shooting of Padmavati began with the Ghoomar song and I will never forget that day.”
She further added “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,”
Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, Padmavati is all set for a worldwide release on December 1.
