Here's the post of Deepika dancing to Ghoomar with a participant on the show, where she was promoting Padmavati.
Here are some comments in support pf Deepika Padukone and her film.
Rajput Karni Sena and other Rajput outfits are protesting against the release of Padmavati. They've alleged that director Sanjay leela Bhansali has misrepresented facts and distorted historical narratives while making the film.
Members of the Rajput outfit had attacked Mr Bhansali earlier this year while he was shooting in Jaipur and later in Mumbai. On both occasions the sets were also vandalized. The protests gained momentum when the promotional material of the film made it way on the social media. The protesters have also threatened to harm Mr Bhansali and Deepika.
Padmavati is based on the story of Rani Padmini, who performed jauhar to evade capture from Alauddin Khilji and his army after they breeched the fort of Chittor. Actor Ranveer Singh plays the role of Alauddin Khilji while Shahid Kapoor plays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh.
Padmavati is scheduled for December 1 release.
