Padmavati: Look who is grooving to the tunes of ‘Ghoomar’

The controversy of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati‘ is a wildfire that just does not seem to end. Instead, it flares with new developments every single day. While on one hand Rajput organisations are calling for a ban on the movie, following which many states have actually done so, despite Supreme Court’s order of CBFC having the final say, there are certain people who are supporting the movie too, in their own way. And one such support has come from the house of Mulayam Singh Yadav, whose daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav performed to the tunes of ‘Ghoomar’ at a function in Lucknow.

The video of the performance was posted by ANI. Here it is.

Well, though this is not as splendid as Deepika’s, but Aparna surely looks serene and gorgeous while performing on it. (Also Read: Padmavati row: International filmmakers support the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial)

The controversy for the movie started when somebody spread the rumour of a scene between Alauddin Khilji and Padmavati in the movie as a dream sequence. Despite the makers’ insistence that there was no such scene, this flared the anger of Rajput communities, with a certain Karni Sena going out to actually vandalise the sets and beat Bhansali up. Though the protests died down soon after, but post the release of trailer, the fire started burning again. There were protests against Deepika as the Queen dancing, and no matter how graceful it was, the protectors of culture thought it to be demeaning to their Goddess queen. Things further worsened when a certain member of the organisation placed bounty on the heads of Bhansali and Padukone, which was supported by a BJP member of Haryana. However, the scariest happened, when the body of a man was found hanging at a fort, with a message carved beside it which hinted the matter’s involvement in the whole murky matter.

Amongst all this, the makers too indefinitely postponed the release date, from the original, December 1. Let’s see what happens now.
