Ghoomar, the first song from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, Padmavati, gave us a glimpse of grandeur we can expect from this period drama. As soon as the song was out, all eyes were on Deepika Padukone’s graceful performance and a ‘mystery woman’ who was barely shown for a few seconds. The lady in question, was Anupriya Goenka.
Here’s everything that you need to know about her:
Anupriya essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh’s (Shahid Kapoor) first wife, Nagmati. As per historical records, Ratan Singh had two wives, Nagmati and Padmavati. The ladies did not share a very cordial relationship. Even in the song, the discomfort and insecurity are evident.
Padmavati is not Anupriya’s Bollywood debut. The dusky beauty has been a part of films like Dhishoom and Paathshala. She made her debut in Telegu movie, Potugadu in 2013. She got a chance to enter in Bollywood with Bobby Jasoos in 2014.
Anupriya also stars in this ad for an e-commerce brand. Check it out here:
