After wooing us with her dance numbers – Kamariya and Dilbar Dilbar – Nora Fatehi was recently a part of the chat show ‘By Invite only’ where she openly spoke about her breakup with Angad Bedi. Nora revealed, “All girls go through at least once in their life! For me, it was a little bit difficult because it was an unexpected experience and I was broken by it. I don’t want people to think that when you are low and dabble with depression that you are not strong. You are still strong! I lost my drive for 2 months! However, I must say that experience really just transformed me. In between, I had lost hope for a bit in terms of perusing my career but when that breakup happened I got that fire again and I was like let’s go.”
She further added, “I am passionate again, I want to work, I want to make my mark, I want to prove everybody wrong and I can’t regret that break up because if it wasn’t for that breakup, my fire wouldn’t have come back and I needed that fire to kind of just explore.”
Talking about gaining her confidence back, the B-town beauty said, “When I was called to audition for Bharat which was way before Dilbar happened… I remember after my audition, I came down I was sitting on the bench, crying and felt shitty that where is my drive and my ambition? Then this one girl comes up to me and says ‘Ma’am can you please record this audition for me’, I was crying, and I took her phone and she stands against the wall and I start recording.”
Further, she added, “As I was recording, I don’t think anyone can imagine what I was actually seeing. I am like that is me! For three years, I did auditions back to back, I waited in line for hours, I auditioned among 200/300 people, I went crazy at home, staying up all night learning lines and scenes. I thought to myself, that girl is me! I was like, ‘Nora wake up! Where is your hunger? There are hundreds and thousands of people who are talented just like you, who are good looking, who are killing themselves to make that happen, you need to get back’, and suddenly, I got my confidence back and that was it.”
Nora is currently shooting for Remo D’Souza’s directorial venture Street Dancer 3D in London. The film also stars Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhudeva and Sunil Grover. For more such updates and Bollywood news, stay tuned to CineBlitz!
