As expected, the act raised quite a few eyebrows.
‘Padmavati’ has been facing the wrath of various Rajput groups and political leaders, who have accused Bhansali of distorting history.
Reacting to the video, Karni Sena’s Lokendra Singh Kalvi said, ‘We are fighting for our cause. Being a Rajput she is dancing on such songs without caring for the sentiments of Rajput. We will send them the original Ghoomar song and other Rajasthani folk songs if they like it so much,’ reported DNA.
