There is no doubt Nora Fatehi is an amazing dancer. The Moroccan beauty has captivating us with her sensational and sizzling dance moves in Dilbar and O Saki Saki. She’s also now leaving a lasting impression with her acting chops with performances in Bharat, Batla House and the music video Pachtaoge.
Nora, who is gaining applauds for her acting, strongly believes that one needs to respect and celebrate dancers.
Making a strong point about why one should give the dancers their dues, Nora passionately said:
“Currently, I am shooting for Street Dancer with professional dancers. Dancers, who have sacrificed so many things in life to become professional dancers and one day I just had an epiphany that why don’t we celebrate dancers the way we celebrate actors? Do you know what dancers go through?
The way they push themselves to do certain moves which are almost humanely impossible. We had these ballerinas on the sets, who were doing ballerina dance style, while simultaneously doing hip-hop style dance with their upper torso – I was amazed.”
Further driving the point home, Nora said:
“It must have taken them years to balance like that, half of us can’t balance while we are walking. Dancing is not easy, and there is a lot of blood, sweat, tears, sacrifices that one has to put in to become a dancer. When an actor does a good scene in the movie, everyone goes crazy – ‘OMG he is such an amazing actor.’
Yes, we should respect actors, I am guilty of that too, but what about the dancers? They should be equally respected and valued. Dancers can take you to another world without even speaking and I feel it’s a shame that it’s not even celebrated like that. It’s time to celebrate them.”
All art forms deserve equal respect and admiration and we are absolute with Nora on this.
