Actress and dancer Nora Fatehi has said that she arrived in India with dreams of stardom, but her bubble burst quite quickly.
Nora grew up in 'the hood' in Canada, and after dropping out of university because of falling grades, decided that she wanted to pursue her true calling: becoming an entertainer.
Nora, in a new interview, emotionally recalled her initial days in India, and said that it pains her to think about all the other aspiring entertainers who've given up on their dreams because of the 'vicious' world.
She said in an appearance on YouTuber Anas Bukhash's show, "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."
