Nora Fatehi is known for her electrifying moves and unmatchable energy in dancer numbers. The actress made her film debut with Street Dancer 3D starring Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor and recently revealed that her upcoming films have different genres. The actress also talked about the competition in showbiz and accused filmmaker of giving ‘only 4 girls’ a chance in films.
In a recent interview with News18, Nora Fatehi revealed why filmmakers don’t take a chance on casting her and said, “I don’t think because I dance is why they don’t want to cast me. Our main iconic heroines in Bollywood have been dancers who perform beautifully. And they excel in dance numbers, right? That was just a part of the package of being like an iconic heroine. I don’t think it was because of that. I think it was always, oh, I don’t know. It’s almost like let’s see who will take the chance on her [on me] and if she delivers in all the categories, meaning, the acting skills, the presence, the aura, the ability to express the language skill, then we’ll all jump on the opportunity. So I think it was who would have got the balls to do it first, to take a chance on me first. I think that was what everyone was waiting for.”
She also shared that the competition is too high in showbiz and without naming anyone, she claimed that filmmakers are giving ‘only 4 girls’ back-to-back work in the industry and said, “Today the industry has become very competitive. Let’s be realistic. There are only a few films a year. And sometimes what happens with filmmakers is they don’t think outside of what’s in front of them. So if only four girls are doing films, and they’re going in rotation, and all four are getting projects nonstop, the filmmakers will only remember those four, they won’t think beyond that.”
Nora added, “So your job is to try to intercept the four and become five and get into rotation and then that’s just how the ball rolls. And yeah, I mean, it’s hard work, but it’s happening. And I’m very grateful for that. I just have to prove myself, so I can stick around. That’s the next challenge.”
Meanwhile, Nora Fatehi will be next seen in the movie 100 Percent which also stars Riteish Deshmukh and Shehnaaz Gill. Helmed by Sajid Khan, the movie is scheduled to hit the theatres this year.
Dream Girl 2 has pretty much confirmed Ananya's status as a non-factor. Jhanvi will continue to slowly fade away. Sara is the only one who has some sort of shot at a longer career, as insufferable as she is.
But she is right. These girls won't be replaced by outsiders, just a new rotation of Suhana, Kushi, other Alia duplicates.
Which four girls?
Waise I'm also pakaoed with over exposed faces especially alia .
You are severely overestimating the pull of most actors and actresses. Very few people get projects "nonstop" - the only 4 in Bollywood who are currently are Deepika, Alia, Kiara and Kriti. You could probably slide in Sara Ali Khan as a technicality, she's right after Kriti.
Janhvi Kapoor uses real estate dealings to get projects (see her selling her house to her coworker)
The Panday family are rich so they use their other connections.
No way are either of them getting "nonstop" projects.
Rasha if I remember correctly is trying to get up there in projects, she has a very influential father. Thing is she looks like a baby and is too young for Bollywood, so producers aren't too interested in her.
