1. Ghoomar Is a Tribute to Brave Rajput Women: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Deepika Padukone starrer Padmavati’s trailer release got a fairly positive reception by audiences. Deepika, reportedly, began filming with Ghoomar after getting trained under the guidance of Jyothi D Tommaar, assistant director and trustee of Gangaur Ghoomar Dance Academy.

We wanted the ‘Ghoomar’ to retain its purity since this was being performed by Rani Padmavati. Every step and every move in the dance form celebrates the royal grace of royalty. This is our dance tribute to the brave Rajput women of Rajasthan.

4. Vidya Balan Recreates Sridevi’s ‘Hawa Hawai’ Charm in Tumhari Sulu

The much-awaited song from Tumhari Sulu, Hawa Hawai 2.0 is finally out. The video showcases Vidya Balan as the lead with Neha Dhupia and RJ Malishka. The three ladies put their most groovy foot forward at an office party in the video track.

Vidya comfortably shows off her moves in a saree. She plays the role of a middle-class woman, who is out to party with her office colleagues, and is comfortable with her own desi attire. The original track belongs to the blockbuster movie Mr India which had Sridevi in it. Thankfully, Kavita Krishnamurthy's vocals and Javed Akhtar's eccentric lyrics have been kept intact.

5. Phew! Mumbai Is Still on Ed Sheeran’s Asia Tour Schedule

Ed Sheeran will start his Asia tour on 11 Nov 2017 in Singapore. Due to health issues, the Shape of You singer had to cancel certain shows in the continent. Thankfully, Mumbai remains on his list!

A follow-up visit to my doctors today confirmed that I will be good to go from the Singapore shows onwards. Osaka, Tokyo and Manila will be rescheduled for April 2018. My dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta will sadly need to be cancelled as it’s just been impossible to reschedule these for next year. I’m really gutted that not all the postponed dates could be rescheduled and I am working hard with my team to try and come back to these places as soon as I can to see all of you. I’m sorry to everyone who has been affected by this.
Ed Sheeran, Singer

His visit to Osaka, Tokyo and Manila has been rescheduled to April 2018. Due to scheduling conflicts and limited venue availability in April 2018, Ed Sheeran had to cancel his tour dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta. Ed Sheeran will perform on 19 November at JioGarden in Mumbai.
