After releasing the trailer of Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali treated us with the first song of the film picturised on the film’s leading lady Deepika Padukone. When the song was out, we were mesmerised by actress’s beauty as well as her Ghoomar performance. This was the first thing that Deepika filmed when she came to the Padmavati sets. While we are in awe of Deepika and her graceful moments, do you know Madhuri Dixit-Nene had a big role to play in the Ghoomar song from Padmavati?Also Read - Sportsmen And Their Alleged Bollywood Affairs: From Yuvraj-Deepika to Hardik-Parineeti | Watch Video
Well, according to an insider who was present on the sets of Padmavati while filming this song, “Bhansali asked a technician to pull up a song clip of Madhuri Dixit from Devdas on YouTube and show it to his leading lady.” Taskmaster SLB was frustrated because DP was not able to nail the steps and the filmmaker was losing patience which is why he asked the technician to the Devdas clip to the actress. Though SLB must have been a little hard on the actress his way of teaching her has certainly paid off.
