It is a rare achievement for any artist to be able to perform at both the opening and closing ceremonies of a big-time world-wide event, let alone someone from India.
Bollywood actress and dancer Nora Fatehi’s success story is unique in every sense of the word. Her success in Bollywood has been no small feat, especially as an outsider without any connections in the industry and no family in the country (she’s Moroccan Canadian). So not only is Nora Fatehi’s desi success as large as hers but she will also be conquering the global stage. To achieve this goal, she is set to make a career changing performance during the Fifa World Cup. Nora will be following in the footsteps of two female mega stars – Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, the type of superstars Nora is aspiring to be.
Fifa World Cup performance by Nora Fatehi
Nora Fatehi will not be the only person from India to perform at the Fifa World Cup, but also the only one from South East Asia. More importantly, Nora will not be performing any ol’ song, but the one that’s been sung and danced to by legends like Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. Just like JLo and Shakira, Nora will put her voice and dance moves to the test by singing and shaking her hips while doing so.

She will also sing and dance to one of her popular Hindi songs during the closing ceremony.
