Nora Fatehi
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|March 2021
Talks about dance, lms and her social media presence

Of Moroccan descent, the stunning Nora Fatehi impresses Raghuvendra Singh with her soft and sensitive side

Hto Morocco – a land where the East meets the West. She was born and bred in Canada. That explains why actor/dancer/singer Nora Fatehi's charisma is global. She made her debut in the Hindi film Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans (2014), and gained popularity in Telugu cinema with item numbers in films like Temper and Kick 2. She's also starred in Malayalam films, Double Barrel and Kayamkulam Kochunni. What won her massive fans are her sensuous and groovy item numbers in Bollywood like Manohari (Baahubali: The Beginning), Dilbar (Satyamev Jayate), O saki saki (Batla House), Kamariya (Stree), and Ek toh kam zindagani (Marjaavaan), besides her recent hit Garmi with Varun Dhawan in Street Dancer 3D. But Nora's not only about sizzling moves. With her sharp sensibilities, she enjoys a strong presence on social media (13.5 million followers on Instagram). Where she urges her followers to be more aware, more humane. Looking forward to her next Bhuj: The Pride of India – she gets chatty about life, career, and more…

Generally, my videos are humorous and made in a comic spirit to make people laugh. Regardless, 2020 has been a terrible year for the entire world so far. It's testing our patience and opening our eyes to things we've been ignorant and oblivious about. I believe this year will be remembered as the start of the New World Order.

The Brave Librarians of Timbuktu

Ever hear the expression “from here to Timbuktu”? People use the word “Timbuktu” to mean a faraway, remote, and possibly mythical place. But not only is it a real city in the north of Mali, it was once the crossroads of the world. Hundreds of years ago, caravans passed through Timbuktu, trading gold, salt, and other goods between the Middle East and Morocco.
