"so I didn’t like that response"

Nora Fatehi recalled her early days in the entertainment industry and revealed that she was told to date certain actors for publicity.

She explained: “I was constantly told, ‘Oh, you know, you should date specific people and date for PR and date this actor and that actor’.

“I never listened to any of that, and I’m so glad because now I make the rules, and I work on my own terms, and my success is not because of another guy next to me or another hero that I’m hanging on to.

“It’s on my own, and everyone else is just a plus. So I’m very proud of that.”

On the other things she did not listen to, Nora said:

“A lot of things I didn’t listen to and a lot of them are the reasons why I am who I am today.

“One was, don’t do songs.

“Another one is, don’t do reality shows.

“Another is, you know, I remember there was this one person who, after the success of ‘Dilbar’, I was saying, ‘Alright, now I want to also focus on opening up another market. I want to go international. Let’s do here, let’s do outside.

“And the response I got was, ‘Okay, no, focus on one thing, that’s it’.

“You know, so I didn’t like that response, so I went on and started doing international stuff at the same time, and I’m doing it both, and it’s working great for me.”

On July 31, 2023, Nora Fatehi attended Patiala House Court for her defamation case against Jacqueline Fernandez and various media outlets.

She told Metropolitan Magistrate Kapil Gupta:

“This defamation case has been filed against Jacqueline Fernandez and the various other channels and publications who have ruined my reputation in the public eye through false narratives.

“They have called me a gold digger and accused me of having a relationship with a con artist Sukesh Chandrasekhar.”

“This has caused me a loss of financial gain and reputation.

“The reason why I have filed this case is because of the ongoing ED case against Sukesh who was accused of conning a sum of Rs. 200 crore that I have nothing to do with and neither do I know anything.

“I feel that I have been used as a scapegoat in this case in the media to safeguard certain people and because I am an outsider and I have been taken as a soft target and I want compensation for all the damages caused to my career.”
