His movies are almost always larger-than-life these days, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali spares no expense to make sure he gets what he wants. So much so, he has now recreated the inside of the Chittorgarh fort on a set for the royal Ghoomar song.

The entire set for the song took around 40 days to erect, with over a hundred people involved in the setup. The set has been inspired by actual references of areas inside the fort and the textures and colours have been referenced in detail, too.

Rajasthani paintings have been used as part of the wall design and 400 diyas have been used to light the set and the team took over two days to light the whole set up. Chari dancers (authentic fire dancers) from Kishangarh and Terahtaali musicians from Jaipur will also be a part of the song.

Deepika took over a month-and-a-half to learn this dance form that has been long associated with royalty. She has been working hard to get the technicalities and footwork right for the Ghoomar number. (Also Read: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor start prepping up for Padmavati) 

SLB seems intent on making sure he betters the impact he made with the Deewani Mastani song in Bajirao Mastani, with Ghoomar. Says a source, “Ghoomar will be the first song SLB shoots for the film, and everything from the visuals, to the sound, to the sets is being carefully planned and put together. It will be a complete royal experience and the final look will leave people spellbound.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmavati is based on the valiant Rani Padmavati of Chittor who preferred to end her life with Jauhar rather than give in to the demands of Alauddin Khilji. The Queen was known for her legendary beauty and poet Mallik Mohammad Jayasi had also composed sonnets in her name. She was the second queen of Rawal Ratan Singh. The role of the Rajput Emperor will be played by Shahid Kapoor. The actor was finalised after a long speculation if he would play the role or not. It is the third collaboration of Deepika and Ranveer Singh with Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani. The film will release in 2017 as per reports. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more updates….

    There were reports a month back that suggested that all is not well between Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.

And with this recent appearance at the Ambani wedding, where they walked hand in hand, we can very well assume that those were indeed rumours and the couple is still very much in love.
