The Moroccan – Canadian actress and dancer, who’s latest stint in Tanishk Bagchi’s recreated version of Sushmita Sen’s ‘Dilbar‘ song for Milap Zaveri’s next ‘Satyameva Jayate’ has broken records to become the first Indian song to reach #3 on the Billboards YouTube charts. The flick stars John Abraham in the lead role.
The song, which was released on the social media platform last week has raced ahead of popular songs like Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s High Rated Gabru by Guru Randhawa from the film Nawabzaade and Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor’s Zingaat by music duo Ajay-Atul from the soon to release Dhadak.

Nora, who looks sizzling hot in the song, has clearly won millions of hearts with her take on the iconic song and the numbers just seem to be growing.
On seeing the love, Nora said “This is incredible ! I am honestly still in disbelief ! This is what any artist dreams of and I am so relieved that everyone is loving my work in dilbar! I felt immense pressure and was very nervous but seeing the success of dilbar surpass such big songs makes me feel very humbled and grateful! I’ve been really waiting for something like this to happen.”
Slated for an Independence Day release, the film also has Manoj Bajpayee, Amruta Khanvilkar and newcomer Aisha Sharma.
