- Ghoomar released Wednesday afternoon
- Twitter has been making it trend since then
- "Ghoomar song portrays Rajasthani culture at its best," says a tweet
Ghoomar - as the song is titled - is actually a Rajasthani folk dance, traditionally performed during auspicious occasions, one of them being a bride's arrival at her marital home. The song appears to be a spectacular portrayal of Rani Padmini's introductory performance for the Raja, Rawal Ratan Singh (played by Shahid Kapoor). Padmavati is the story of Chittor's Rani Padmini, who lead hundreds of Rajput women to commit jauhar to avoid being captured by Alauddin Khilji, after he invaded the fort of Chittor.
Ghoomar is another fine example of the movie celebrating Rajputana culture. #PadmavatiRajputPride— Ali Quli Mirza (@AliQuliMirzaAQM) October 25, 2017

Folks rooting for Padmavati as a brilliant portrayal of the Rajput culture is a big boost for director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, whose ambitious period piece has been delayed twice already. After the movie began filming last year, sets in Kolhapur were attacked and torched in March, damaging valuable property, props and costumes. In January, Mr Bhansali was targeted while shooting on the sets of the movie in Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort and assaulted by members of Karni Sena. After the first looks came out, posters were burnt by members of the Shri Rajput Karni Sena, an outfit of the Rajput community, who object to the nature of reference to Alauddin Khilji in the movie. Ranveer Singh plays the part.
