Deepika Padukones most difficult yet fulfilling song from the upcoming film Padmavati

Here’s a sneak peek into Deepika Padukone’s ‘most difficult yet fulfilling song’ from the upcoming film Padmavati

Text: Aiswarya John

Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The name resonates magnificence, grandeur, and opulence. Pair him with an ethereal beauty such as Deepika Padukone and you have yet another winner in your hands.

Bhansali’s upcoming period-drama Padmavati has been generating quite a buzz for a while now; particularly the poster of Alauddin Khilji’s (Ranveer Singh) heavily-kohled smoldering gaze while revelling in a lotus pond.

But the release of Padmavati’s first much-awaited track ‘Ghoomar’ had all eyes on a crimson elegantly-clad coy Rani Padmini (Padukone) stepping into the dance arena and performing the Rajasthani folk dance to perfection.

Traditionally performed by a new bride when she is welcomed into her new marital home, the performance was the perfect blend of blush and tease, with Padmini stealing occasional glances at the Raja (Shahid Kapoor), who watched her with a mystified spellbound expression.

“The Ghoomar Song has to be one of the most difficult yet most fulfilling song sequences i have ever shot for! #GhoomarToday @FilmPadmavati,” Deepika elucidates on Twitter.

While Shreya Ghoshal and Swaroop Khan offer their vocals for the song, the lyrics are penned by A. M. Turaz while the Rajasthani lyrics by Swaroop Khan.
Performing 66 twirls in her majestic traditional ‘poshak’ for the song, she spent hours training under the guidance of Jyothi D Tommaar, assistant director and trustee of Gangaur Ghoomar Dance Academy while being choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya.

Be it Nagade Sang Dhol Baje from Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela or Deewani Mastani from Bajirao Mastani, Padukone has always emerged a Bhansali favourite. And for good reason.

Wardrobe Essentials Every Men Should Have

Published

on

Make your appearance dazzling and give a character to your appearance – all by just updating your wardrobe with these essentials

Text Credit: Roshan D

The term fashion means a practice or a popular style especially when it comes to clothing and personal style. And, talking about the personal style of a person, it immediately falls on how a person carries himself or herself – giving characters to their soul and appearance through the world of fashion.

Though fashion is most commonly associated with women, the men are no less when it comes to flaunting their expensive sneakers and watches. But do they have their wardrobe sort? Well, worry not! It’s time to give the men a wardrobe update with the must-have-essentials to make them look appealing and give character to their soul and appearance.

A Classic White Button-Down Shirt

Classy, elegant and crisp, a white button-down shirt is a must-have in a man’s wardrobe. Classy yet simple in nature, a white button-down can go with anything and everything making you look classy and one of a kind.

Crew Neck T-Shirts

You say it or not, crew neck t-shirts are a must have in a man’s wardrobe. Versatile in its nature, a crew neck t-shirt can be paired up with a pair of jeans or trousers or shorts depending on the occasion, making you look a next door guy. While basic – white/black/grey t-shirts make the best in the wardrobe, they are easy and effortless. And, if you prioritize comfort and charm at the same time, make sure you have them right there in your wardrobe.

A Suit

Grand occasions are the places to shine and if you want to shine, and make the grand gesture memorable, a suit is a right option. Royal, elegant and modern at the same time, it gives a sense of value and respect to your character which enables you to have a smarter and approachable personality. While a black is considered to be superior, we would suggest you Navy as it works with a whole range of occasions.

A Pair of Denim

While a pair of jeans is every man’s saviour, the question of colour will be the biggest of all the questions the men might have come across. And, worry not, because the answer is right here – Dark Blue. Rich in colour, it fits perfectly with every outfit in the wardrobe. Button-up, button-down, checked or crew neck, you name it and your dark blue denim is the solution to it. Its simple but appealing for sure!

A Pair of Chinos

Finding an alternative to your pair of jeans? Chinos are the best. Falling into the semi-casual alternative of the wardrobe game, it works perfectly with nearly anything from your wardrobe. While there is an explosion of colours with chinos these days, we would still recommend the old-school khaki or beige as it will make you look expressive.

Lace-up Shoes

Going back to traditions are our favourite things and our favourite thing in a man’s wardrobe are his lace-up shoes. Not any lace-up shoes – but the old-school black and brown. Adding this to your wardrobe not only give a sense of finish to it, but it helps you finish your whole look. While you can pair this for a formal occasion, you can party in your lace-up shoes with a pair of ankle-length trousers and a polo shirt. Doesn’t it sound awesome?

Sneakers

If casual is your favourite word, then sneakers are something that will definitely suit you. While white sneakers are much in trend these days, don’t forget to add a print that talks more about your character. Rich in colour and elegance, the happiness surely lies in a good pair of sneakers. It can go with any kind of look that you wanna go for, whether it is casual, office or gym wear, a pair of white sneakers will always prove to be handy.

A Timepiece

While most of us look at the time on our laptop screens or mobile screens, there is nothing more blissful than looking at the time on the timepiece on your wrist. Classy and with a tone of masculinity, a bigger dial with a classic jet black or silver straps adds the masculine charm to a man’s wardrobe, no matter what time of the year it is. It will surely add to the gentlemen look that you crave for…

A Man Bag

Gone are those days when men carried their day’s essential in any random bags. Welcome the perfect man bag to perfect your appearance with the perfects from your wardrobe. Versatility and functionality are the keywords to concentrate when choosing a man bag and you’re good to go.

 

 

Now that you know what goes into the wardrobe and what’s not, what are you waiting for?
