A video of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav dancing on Padmavati’s Ghoomar has gone viral on social media platforms.
Aparna danced to the Ghoomar song of the yet-to-be-released movie while celebrating her younger brother Aman Bisht’s engagement ceremony at a five-star hotel in Lucknow on Saturday.
The song has been picturised on Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone in the film. As expected, the act raised quite a few eyebrows.
“It is sad that a prominent political family’s member has chosen to behave in such a fashion. It is as if she is trying to tease us and rub salt in our wounds,” a leader of Karni Sena, which is bitterly opposing the movie’s release without changes, said.

The Karni Sena is particularly miffed at this particular song which, it contends, shows Rajput women dancing in public, which is not a depiction of the reality of the past.
Padmavati faces several threats from Rajput Sena. The film was accused to have offensive content against Rajput community.
The film was earlier slated to release on December 1. But, Central Board of Certification has returned the film saying that it is ‘incomplete’. CBFC denied viewing the film on the grounds of ‘deficiency in application’.
