Amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming movie Padmavati, another chapter has been added to it. As per NDTV, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s youngest daughter-in-law, Aparna Yadav, recently matched her steps to the tunes of the ‘Ghoomar’ song from the movie. Media reports suggest that she danced on the song during her brother Aman Bisht’s engagement party at a five-star hotel in Lucknow.

The Rajput Karni Sena, who has been at the forefront of the protests against the Bollywood film Padmavati said, objected to Aparna performing on the number. The organisation has urged a nationwide ban on Padmavati.

Padmavati, based on the life of a Rajput Queen Rani Padmavati, is in the eye of the storm following protests from Karni Sena and other political groups over alleged tampering with historical facts.


In the video that went viral on social media, Aparna can be seen dolled up as a bride in gorgeous red clothes as she performed to the song. Slamming all critics, her father Arvind Singh Bisht, who is Uttar Pradesh’s information commissioner, told NDTV:

We have no interest in any film or any scandal around it. At these private wedding functions, people often dance to folk songs and film songs. That was the spirit in which she danced.

Meanwhile, as soon as Aparna’s video hit the social media, it became viral, attracting myriad comments from Twitterati. Here are some glimpses of it :

Aparna Yadav, who had contested the Uttar Pradesh election earlier this year but was defeated in the constituency of Lucknow, was not available for any comment on this “issue” though.


What is your perception to this entire issue? Do you think some people are just making an issue out of nothing? Or, was this video indeed meant to hurt the Rajput sentiments? Please share in your views with us in the comments section below!
