Mumbai: The first song of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmavati , which was released on Wednesday morning is getting very popular amongst the fans who loved Deepika’s dance, her stunning look and the music.
Actor Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini looked ethereal and excelled the Rajasthani folk dance with beautiful grace. Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh also looked impressive as the King. But in Ghoomar song, another attention-grabber was the beautiful Rani, sitting in the middle of the row. We were wondering, who the other woman was, looking like a ravishing Queen.
Well, now we know that’s none other than Ratan Singh’s first wife Nagmati, played by Anupriya Goenka. As per history records, Ratan Singh’s had two wives, Nagmati and Padmavati and both of them didn’t get along too well.
It’s interesting to mention here that Anupriya Goenka is not very unknown face as we’ve seen her playing a lesbian character in the contentious Myntra ad. She was also seen playing a small character in Arjun Rampal’s recently released Daddy and Varun Dhawan-John Abraham starrer Dishoom.

The fan page of Bhansali has confirmed on Twitter that, Anupriya is playing the first wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh.
Well, Padmavati is surely Anupriya’s big release and we hope she get right recognition with this role.
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial sees Shahid playing Deepika aka Rani Padmavati's husband. It also features Ranveer Singh in the role of Alauddin Khilji. The magnum opus is all set to hit the screens on December 1.
