Mumbai, Oct 26: Seeing the amazing grace that Deepika Padukone brings to the “Ghoomar” song in “Padmavati”, it is evident that the number did not just happen in the routine way that filmy choreographic songs go.

One of the most accomplished Ghoomar dancers of Rajasthan Jyothi D. Tommaar was on the sets to make sure that Deepika performed the dance with the understated grace that it deserves.

A source from Sanjay Leela Bhansali productions says: “We wanted to retain absolute authenticity of the Ghoomar. Deepika had to perform the subtle and intricate dance form not the way it is shown in our films but the way royalty performs it.”

“In addition to the routine choreographers we got Jyothi Tommaar, a true and disciplined exponent of the Ghoomar who has taught the dance form to the Rajmata of Kishangarh.”

Deepika spent 12 days rehearsing the “Ghoomar” number and four days actually performing it on camera. About 60 chorus dancers, all trained Ghoomar exponents, performed alongside Deepika.

The result is spectacular beyond belief.

Movie director Sanjay Bhansali says: “We wanted the ‘Ghoomar’ 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.” (IANS)

The #MeToo movement is not a man versus woman debate, says Bollywood’s leading actress Deepika Padukone, who feels it is a matter of voices being raised in favour of right over wrong.

Deepika Padukone and actor Ranveer Singh, who made a joint appearance at the 16th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here on Friday, were asked to comment on the raging #MeToo movement in Bollywood.

She said: “For me, the MeToo movement is not about gender. It’s about the victory of right over wrong. So anyone who faces any sort of discrimination or any sort of abuse, I think we as a people must support that person. It’s not about a woman or a man or female vs male, let’s not get confused in that conversation.”

While not directly addressing Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar, Ranveer said gender irrespective, any kind of harassment is unacceptable.

“Harassment per se, is wrong. Harassment of anyone. Women, men… Any person being harassed is wrong, whether it is in the workplace, public place, the street, at home… harassment is wrong. Right now there is something that has happened, and there are all kinds of speculations, but if it has happened, it takes a lot of courage to speak about it.

“You’ve been through some very disturbing experience. It takes courage to speak publicly about it. Therefore you must consider what the person is saying. But it’s inconclusive yet, so we are confused about what actually happened. But if it has, it is absolutely wrong and I condemn it emphatically. It is beyond gender… Harassment of any kind. If you maliciously act against anyone, it is absolutely wrong,” Ranveer said, eliciting loud applause from the audience. (IANS)
