Padmaavat makers have released a new version of their film’s song “Ghoomar” after all the controversy that surrounded the Deepika Padukone centric film.

In the latest version of the song, Deepika Padukone’s midriff has been covered with the special effects, coming across as one of the five modifications that the censor board had demanded of the makers.

The members of Karni Sena as well as the erstwhile royal family members of Jaipur had raised objections to the queen depicted in the so called fashion that she was shown earlier.

“The CBFC’s Examining Committee asked the film’s producers—the director was not present during the censor screening—to remove the shots where her stomach was visible. However, such editing would have disturbed the smooth choreographic flow of the elegant dance number. The director preferred to conceal Deepika’s belly through computer graphics,” a source present at the film’s screening had earlier said.

Padmaavat will get a solo release on January 25.

The film was earlier supposed to clash with Akshay Kumar’s PadMan which is not scheduled to release on February 9.

“See, we are one family and I can understand he (Bhansali) has gone through a lot, he has put a lot of money, the studio people have put a lot of money. I would want Padmaavat to release solo and would like to wish him luck. PadMan will now release on February 9,” Akshay Kumar said during the press meet.
