TORONTO: Canadian dancer-actress Nora Fatehi is taking Bollywood by storm.
Her hip-shaking dance Dilbar in the movie Satyameva Jayate is breaking records.
Now the doe-eyed Canadian beauty of Moroccan origin is the set to make her singing debut as she has roped in Morocco-based group Fnaire to do the song in Arabic. The Arabic video is due out next month.
Annnouncing this, the Montreal-born beauty says, “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.
“As Dilbar has become a huge hit internationally, including the Middle East, we have taken the song and re-composed it, written Arabic and Moroccan lyrics and we recorded, with me singing with Fnaire.
“This is my debut as a singer and Fnaire will be rapping with me in the song. I am also producing the song and T-Series will be launching it on their channel. We have maintained the crucial parts of the song and fans will enjoy that. I really wanted to take Dilbar to Africa and the Middle East in Arabic because it was also a perfect way to launch myself.”
