Nora Fatehi set the temperature soaring with Dilbar in the movie ‘Satyamev Jayate’ and now the Moroccon-Canadian model-dancer brings in the Arabic version of the song in collaboration with an Arabic band.
For the the Arabic version 26 year old Nora Fatehi collaborated with the Arabic band Fnaire and the video features traditional Indian elements, which include a lush backdrop of Rajasthani palaces, vibrant costumes and dry colours.
‘Dilbar’ has been directed by Abderrafia el Abdioui and choreographed Caesar Gonsalves. Fatehi, who is a trained belly dancer, is seen showcasing her deft moves in the song.
She looks resplendent in a yellow lehnga and a turquoise blue blouse. The model has adorned heavy and intricate jewelry for the dance number.
The original Dilbar number was performed by Sushmita Sen, who praised Fatehi saying that she was “absolutely fantastic”. “Nora has absolutely killed it but I still like the original version more,” added Sen.
