"I am so grateful for this opportunity!"
Actress and dancer Nora Fatehi has returned to the popular dance show, India’s Best Dancer, allegedly by public demand.
Nora had stepped in as a temporary judge on the show after Malaika Arora tested positive for Covid-19.
After her recovery and return to the show, Nora Fatehi left the show.
However, according to a report by Mumbai Mirror, viewers of the show urged producers to bring Nora back.
They felt that she carved a niche for herself as a self-made dancer making her well suited for the dance show.
Not only that, but the TRPs of ‘India’s Best Dancer’ significantly increased for the show when Nora was a judge.
With Nora Fatehi as a judge, ‘India’s Best Dancer’ found itself amongst the top five shows on Indian television.
However, when she left the show, the TRPs significantly decreased. As a result of this, she was brought back as a fourth judge.
A video of Nora Fatehi, Malaika Arora and Geeta Kapur has been shared online by a Nora Fatehi fan page. In the video, the trio is seen dancing to ‘Nach Meri Rani’ while judge Terence Lewis is cheering.
