The song showcasing the regal beauty performing the traditional folk dance ghoomar has received a large response.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati is one of the much-awaited movies of the year and is set to hit the screens on December 1. Choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya and Ghoomar training by Jyothi D Tommaar. It is usually the characteristic of this dance performed during religious rituals that a group of women with a veil rotates their weighty lahngis at high speed and once the dance starts, it does not stop "roaming" or "churning"., Until the song is finished. The song is sung in the melodious voice of Bollywood's playback singer Shreya Ghoshal and it was very well received by the fans. The traditional folk dance of Rajasthan is ranked in the top 10 in the list of folk dances worldwide and it is obvious that this dance form was also present at the time of Rani Padmavati.

Adding to the hard dance form that includes twists and twirls, Deepika had to do the dance in an extravagant costume and adorned in heavy jewelry, which is a feat in itself. Be it the first look, first posters or now the first song, Deepika has been the choice of the makers.

The director of the movie Sanjay Leela Bhansali says that they wanted the "Ghoomar" to retain the purity since this was being performed by the Rani Padmini.

"I remember approaching my mark for the first shot and suddenly I felt a chill run through my body". She nearly felt like Padmavati soul had entered her body and that feeling still lingers and this will continue for years to come.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati features Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles. "That feeling still lingers and will accompany me for several years from now", Deepika added.
