Nora Fatehi Expresses Desire for Films with Female Characters Capable of Next-Level Action

Nora Fatehi, known for her dancing prowess, credits her dance background for helping her master stunts in the recently released film “Crakk”. She aspires to perform “next level action” like her co-stars Vidyut Jammwal and Arjun Rampal in future projects.

Fatehi, who has showcased her talent in films such as “Street Dancer 3D” and “Bhuj: The Pride of India”, believes that like dance, action sequences are also choreographed. She compares dancers to athletes due to the physical demands both fields require. “You do the same thing in the dance and action world. You have to follow a certain choreography when the action director is formulating a scene,” she explained.

She feels her dance background aided her in performing action sequences. However, she acknowledges that the action performed by Arjun and Vidyut was extraordinary and hopes to see more female roles that can perform such stunts.

Fatehi describes “Crakk”, directed by Aditya Datt, as a film featuring “self-made actors and outsiders”. Jammwal has also supported the movie through his Action Hero Films banner.

She highlighted the ongoing debate about the lack of opportunities for outsiders in big-budget projects. She appreciates that Vidyut and Aditya took a chance on self-made actors and outsiders for a high-budget film.

“Crakk” narrates the journey of a man named Siddhu, portrayed by Jammwal, from the slums of Mumbai to the world of extreme underground sports.

Rampal, who plays the antagonist in the film, shared his perspective on what constitutes a villain. The 51-year-old actor, known for his grey roles in films such as “Om Shanti Om”, “Ra.One”, and “Dhaakad”, believes a villain is someone who loses control over their desires, especially when these desires could harm others.

Jackson, 32, expressed her joy at returning to films after a five-year break. The actor, known for “Ekk Deewana Tha” and “2.0”, has been striving to balance work and motherhood.

Upon receiving the offer for ‘Crakk’, she was initially hesitant but was convinced after discussing the storyline with Aditya. She admitted to facing challenges while managing schedules and dealing with the guilt common among working mothers.

Jackson, mother to four-year-old Andreas, mentioned that her son has accompanied her on sets and is familiar with India. She believes that his exposure to new cultures, travel, and seeing his mother on the big screen has instilled a strong work ethic in him.

“Crakk” was released on February 23.
