In addition, she would also be shooting a collaboration video for which she is flown into Mumbai.
Speaking of her debut as a singer Nora said, “It is a huge deal for both Morocco and India because this is the first time we will be getting Indian culture and Moroccan culture together artistically and musically and this has been my goal as well, to bring them together.” Fatehi said that the lyrics have been written in Arabic and Moroccan language, recomposed and then recorded.
It was Nora’s goal to take ‘Dilbar’ to the Middle East and Africa because she felt that it was the best way she could launch herself. She revealed that she has produced the song and T Series will be launching it on their channel. The upcoming video is being directed by Morocco based director Abderrafia El Abdioui.
Nora Fatehi has worked in several projects prior to appearing in ‘Satyamev Jayate.’ She made her Bollywood debut in ‘Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans’. She has even appeared in Malayalam and quite a few Telugu movies. The actress was signed up for movies such as ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ and ‘Kick 2’. Amongst TV shows, Nora has appeared in ‘Bigg Boss’ as a wildcard entrant and she was a contestant in ‘Jhalak Dikhla Ja’ in 2016.
Reviewers praised her acting skills in a project called ‘My Birthday Song’ which is a psychological thriller. She was paired opposite Sanjay Suri in this very gripping movie.
