Moroccon-born Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi ‘is enjoying her time on Jhalak Dhikhhla Jaa 9’. Former Bigg Boss contestant is taking part in the ninth season of the show.
She made her film debut in the Bollywood film Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans. Her next movie was Crazy Cukkad Family. She gained popularity in Telugu cinema by doing item numbers in films like Temper, Baahubali and Kick 2. She’s also starred in a Malayalam film Double Barrel.
Nora said in an interview though she liked dancing when she was young, her parents never encouraged her as they wanted her to concentrate on her studies. “When I was young, I liked belly dancing, so I would watch a lot of professional belly dancers. It took quite some time to learn the dance techniques,” she said.
“I don’t think people could connect with me in Bigg Boss, since I had a short stint. With Jhalak, I want to have a connection with the audience because I feel I have a connection with Indians. That is why I have left my country, my family and friends, and am here”.
Talking about an item number she did for John Abraham’s Rocky Handsome she says the film did not do well but her song became a hit and people are still talking about it.
Nora was born in Morocco and she says she does not feel a stranger in India as the Muslim Arab culture is like that of India. She grew fond of India as she spent some time in Saudi Arabia with lot of Indians there. – CINEWS
