Nora Fatehi: ‘Hope writers make films with female characters that can do next level action’



Nora Fatehi is gearing up for high-octane action in her upcoming film “Crakk,” where she stars alongside Vidyut Jammwal and Arjun Rampal. The actress, known for her dancing prowess, credits her background in dance for helping her learn stunts in the movie.

In an interview, Nora expressed her desire to do “next-level action” like her co-stars Vidyut Jammwal and Arjun Rampal in future projects. She emphasized that action, like dance, is choreographed and requires a certain level of physicality and discipline.

“I feel it (being a dancer) helped me. Arjun and Vidyut did next level action, I had an action sequence but not like what they did which was out of this world. I only hope one day writers make films with female roles that can do such stunts. I want that because I’m ready to do that,” Nora said.

Directed by Aditya Datt, “Crakk” is a film that features self-made actors and outsiders, according to Nora. She praised her co-star Vidyut Jammwal for backing the movie through his Action Hero Films banner.

“We all know that a debate has been going on for a couple of years about outsiders and how come they are not in certain projects and how filmmakers don’t take them in especially big-budget projects. Vidyut and Aditya sir took a punt on all self-made actors and outsiders on a huge budget film,” added Nora.

“Crakk” follows the journey of a man named Siddhu, played by Vidyut Jammwal, from the slums of Mumbai to the world of extreme underground sports. Arjun Rampal stars as the antagonist in the film, and he shared his perspective on what defines a villain.

“I think a person who loses control over curbing his or her desires (is a villain). These desires could be harmful to another individual… Being absolutely selfish, that person kind of goes towards a villainous trait. If you have desires that are not harmful and they are as strong as the villain’s desires but they don’t harm anybody…” said Arjun Rampal.

“Crakk” is set to be released on February 23, and Nora Fatehi is excited to be back on the big screen after a five-year hiatus. She has been balancing work and motherhood, and she hopes that her work ethic will inspire her four-year-old son Andreas.

“When I got the call about Crakk, I thought this is not what I had in mind but I sat with Aditya on Zoom, heard the storyline and it was fantastic. It was challenging trying to juggle schedules. That mum guilt is always going to be there, all mums have it. But I also want him to know that I’m a working mum,” said Nora.

Her son Andreas has been on sets with her and is familiar with India, which Nora believes has instilled a strong work ethic in him. “Everything I do now is for him,” she added.
