The much-awaited first Padmavati song Ghoomar is out and we cannot stop gushing over Deepika Padukone's surreal beauty as Rani Padmavati.
The video features a gorgeous Deepika loaded in heavy Rajasthani jewellery, complete with traditional white lac bangles, performing Ghoomar to perfection.
Rajasthan's traditional dance form Ghoomar is characterised by its signature twirls. It is performed by Rajput women on all auspicious occasions.
Despite spectacular sepia-toned sets of the song that is brought to life by hundreds of diyas, where deep, dark earthy hues of costumes blend into the visual landscape as magic, you cannot take your eyes off Deepika who personifies elegance and royalty.
The video also features Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh who looks as stunned as you'd be. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali weaves magic with Ghoomar.
"The routine involves twirling in circles with perfectly co-ordinated hand movements and footwork," explained Padmavati's official Twitter handle.
Sharing her Ghoomar experience with fans and followers, Deepika tweeted: "The Ghoomar Song has to be one of the most difficult yet most fulfilling song sequences i have ever shot for! "
The song is sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Swaroop Khan who also wrote the Rajasthani lyrics along with lyrist A.M. Turaz. Deepika mastered Ghoomar under expert training by Jyothi D. Tommaar while the song was choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya.
Padmavati is based on the poem Padmavat written by 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi. The star cast includes Shahid Kapoor as Rani Padmini's husband Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as conqueror Alauddin Khilji. The film is slated to release on December 1.
