Nora: I want to see myself as a better performer after the completion of this show.
NT: Fitness is very important for dancers, what is your fitness mantra?
Nora: I personally don’t go for gyming. Dancing away and rehearsals help me lose 2-3 kg of weight. So I feel dance is one good way to stay fit.
NT: What do you do to de-stress yourself?
Nora: I listen to music which acts as the best stress buster for me.
NT: What is your style mantra?
Nora: To be what you are and to wear the cloth which make you feel comfortable.
NT: What does dance mean to you?
Nora: Personally, dance is to express my inner feelings, to communicate certain ideas and concepts that I can’t express through words. It’s a form of escapism for me from all the problems and craziness of the world to relive stress; it’s a form of therapy to me.
NT: What does ‘Hot’ mean to you?
Nora: Hot to me is a vibe, a feeling, and energy. Something that catches my attention, something which makes me think there is an X-factor, that X-factor is hot to me.
What are your preparations to bring the Heat element on Jhalak Dikla Jaa?
Nora: I will bring the oomph factor through my dance moves, through my body language, my expressions through my confidence. The hot element on Jhalak is going to be Cornel and my partnership with him.
