Padmavati also stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, who doesn't have any scenes with Deepika's Rani Padmini in the movie.
"Overjoyed and Grateful! Thank you all so much for the love," wrote Deepika while Shahid added: "Spellbound by the abundant love Ghoomar has been receiving. Thank you so much everyone."
A lot of effort has been invested in fine-tuning the Ghoomar song. Deepika trained under Jyoti D Tommaar, whose expertise is the Ghoomar dance genre, and was choreographed by Kruti Mahesh. IANS reports that Deepika took 12 days to rehearse the choreography while the song was shot over four days.
Perfectionist director Sanjay Leela Bhansali shared the idea behind so much hard work and told IANS: "We wanted the Jhoomar 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."
