Model-ac­tor Nora

Fatehi (right) made her pres­ence felt on screen when she ap­peared on the re­al­ity show Bigg Boss sea­son 9 and af­ter that she has of­ten made head­lines for her al­leged linkup with ac­tor An­gad Bedi. How­ever, the two clar­i­fied that they are “just friends”. Now the Moroc­can Cana­dian is again mak­ing news for her siz­zling moves in Raf­taar’s new dance video— Baby Mar­vake Maanegi, which is said to be In­dia’s first dance­hall video. “Dance­hall has been a world­wide rage. A lot of artists like Drake, Ri­hanna, Ed Shereen have been in­spired by dance­hall mu­sic re­cently,” says Nora adding that she’s quite fa­mil­iar with the dance­hall dance style. “I’ve grown up in Toronto where ev­ery­body danced in this style. It was very pop­u­lar and if you didn’t know it, then you were not con­sid­ered cool (laughs). In In­dia, this style is slowly gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity among the youth,” says Nora.

While Nora’s sen­su­ous dance moves can’t go un­no­ticed in the video, it’s pri­mar­ily Raf­taar, who is hog­ging the lime­light. Ask Nora if she ever felt over­shad­owed by Raf­taar, she says, “Not at all. My fans have pointed out on so­cial me­dia that ‘Nora dances like a boss’, and the hype about me fea­tur­ing in the song shows that I have not been over­shad­owed. I feel you let your work speak for it­self. The com­bi­na­tion of me and Raf­taar shar­ing screen space to­gether is in it­self fire.”
