Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh starrer Padmaavat has been winning hearts all over the world. The craze of the film has taken the entire globe by storm, which is what explains a family in San Francisco Bay Area booking an entire theatre and watching the film dressed in Padmavati-like ensemble. The film has Deepika essaying the role of Rani Padmini, Shahid as the Rajput king Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer as the menacing and ruthless Delhi Sultanate ruler, Alauddin Khilji. The film is based on the 13th century poem by Malik Mohammad Jayasi, Padmavat. Also Read - Ranveer Singh's Efforts to Make Indian Sign Language an Official Language is on
Senior film critic and Komal Nahta took to Twitter to share a video of the family members dressed as the characters in the film and dancing to the song, Ghoomar. He wrote, “San Francisco Bay Area families bought a whole show of the movie theatre (in Sunnyvale, California) to see Padmaavat and there was a dress code – ‘Every one should dress like Padmavati.’ And before the show there was this dancing.” Take a look at the video below : (ALSO READ : Loved Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat And Want Ranveer Singh To Do More Such Roles?

Incidentally, during a basketball match between Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat teams at the National Basketball Association (NBA) in the USA, the cheerleaders reportedly danced to the Ghoomar song on January 28, 2018. One of the primary reasons why the fringe group, Shri Rajput Karni Sena, protested against the film, was this song as they believed that it showed the Queen in poor light, bringing dishonour to her name. Well, the fringe group is still continuing with its protests and agitations, but, even after banning the film in four states, the period drama is doing phenomenally well at the Box Office. In five days, the film has already collected Rs 129 crore.
