Watch Video: Mulayam Singh's chhoti bahu Aparna Yadav is breaking the internet with her 'Ghoomar' jig from Padmavati
While Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed period film 'Padmavati' is facing opposition from the Rajput community over alleged distortion of historical facts, a video of Aparna Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav's younger daughter-in-law, dancing to the 'Ghoomar' song from the controversial film has gone viral on social media.

In the video, Aparna, who is married to Mulayam's younger son Prateek Yadav, can be seen taking centre stage and dancing to the song Ghoomar with a group of women in traditional Rajasthani style.

According to media reports, Aparna was attending the engagement ceremony of her brother in Lucknow where she performed the Ghoomar dance from the film Padmavati.

Soon after the video went viral, Karni Sena, a Rajasthan-based fringe group that has been opposing Padmavati's screening since early this year, objected over Aparna Yadav's dance.

"We are fighting for our cause. Being a Rajput she is dancing on such songs without caring for the sentiments of Rajput. We will send them the original Ghoomar song and other Rajasthani folk songs if they like it so much," he said.

The fringe group has also threatened the film's stars with violence if the movie is released citing that the movie hurts their sentiments.

On the other hand, Aparna's father Arvind Singh Bisht, who is the information commissioner of Uttar Pradesh, told NDTV: "We have no interest in any film or any scandal around it. At these private wedding functions, people often dance to folk songs and film songs. That was the spirit in which she danced."

Recently, Yogi Adityanath-led UP Government had decided not to screen the film in the state after Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat banned the film's release.

Earlier this year, Aparna contested the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election but was defeated in the constituency of Lucknow by Rita Bahuguna Joshi of the BJP by a margin of 33,796 votes.
