Padmaavat row: Ghoomar modified version covers Deepika Padukone’s bare midriff with ‘cloth’

Mumbai: Padmaavat (also known as Padmavati) has faced lots of controversy due to which the protestors have demanded complete ban of movie. But, after facing so much controversies, it will finally hit theatres on January 25.

The one reason it got into trouble was because of the Ghoomar song. There were claims that the Rani (queen) did not dance in front of anyone, and some Rajput sections also raised eyebrows on Deepika Padukone’s Ghoomar attire. The makers of Padmaavat have made a significant cosmetic change to the song Ghoomar.

The new version of the song, Ghoomar which is available on YouTube replaces Padukone’s bare midriff with computer generated cloth. It is reported that the changes were made to ensure a U/A certificate for the film, which will release in theatres on January 25.

The original version of the song is still available on YouTube.


Even after the changes, the Karni Sena has not accepted the film. Earlier, the Karni Sena demanded complete ban on the film, and also threatened violence against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s and actress Deepika Padukone.

Padmaavat stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles. The film is going to clash with Pad Man, but due to request from Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Akshay Kumar has shifted his film to February 9. And now, Pad Man clashes with Aiyaary.
