Songs like ‘Piya Tu’ and ‘Aaj Ki Raat’ that was massive hit back then, revived the audience this time, with Nora’s magic. If there is anyone that can so accurately pull off the responsibility of channelling Helen’s aura, it is none other than Nora herself! Nora Fatehi has also often idolized legendary actress and dancer Helen in many of her interviews. In 2017, she even got to meet the star who later blessed her. 

When asked on how she managed to pull this off with such ease, she mentioned, “I really studied all her videos properly, even the breathing spaces of the shoulder movements, the hands and just the aura! I had to be feminine, I had to be poised, I had to be very flirty and I had to own it!” 

If she would play Helen in her biopic, if it were ever to be made, to which she said, “Of course that would be an honour! I mean if the filmmakers ever think of me, because I feel like we have so many similarities. She came from a different country, I did, it was tough for both of us, we were introduced to the world through dance and that too in a different genre of dance. We changed what dance meant in cinema…… If anyone would need to embody that and really show what that emotion is, I think I would really be able to connect with that. But of course, it would be an honour.” 

She continues to say, “I would die! That for me would be like packing up, I'm done! I did what I came to do.” Glimpses of the award show have been circulating the internet but to watch the whole performance, fans will have to wait just a bit more.
