Nora Fatehi is one of the most popular actresses/dancers in Bollywood currently. She is indeed every filmmaker's favourite when it comes to setting the screen on fire with her beauty, expressions and dancing. However, her journey to stardom wasn't easy. Talking about her initial days in Bollywood during an interview, the Canadian actress recalled the traumatic experience she went through while auditioning for roles.
"We were so excited and so naive. When I reached India, it was nothing like (what I had imagined). I was thinking I'll get picked up by a limousine and a butler, and they're going to take me to a suite, and I would go to my auditions in that limo. It was nothing like that. I had the biggest slap in my face. The bullying, the rejection, the traumatic experience that I went through," Nora said.
As tears rolled down, Nora added, "If someone had told me that these are all the things I was going to go through -- 'You're going to meet evil people, they're going to steal your passport, you're going to get deported, you're going to go back to Canada and people are going to laugh at you. How do you go from a developed country to a developing country? You're going to go back to India, you're going to fight, learn the language, and you're going to meet people who're going to laugh at you on the way, they're going to laugh in your face'."
Nora further added that casting directors would call her for auditions who knew that she wasn't an Indian. They would give her lines in Hindi just to laugh at her. "They would start laughing together, high-fiving each other," she said, thinking to herself, "How f****g dare you, wait till I leave. Don't do it in front of my face," Nora shared.
