"I definitely feel that 2018 is my year. I have worked really hard and put my best foot forward, but I didn't expect these kind of results. Having the biggest song of the year, every actor dreams of this, every actor is fighting for this and me being the one who gets it, I feel grateful," said Nora.
"I was waiting for my due and my moment, and people have been noticing me for a while now, but this year has been life-changing. It's going to get bigger and better hopefully, if I continue to work hard and work with dignity," she added.
The video of "Dilbar" from "Satyameva Jayate" has been viewed over 700 million times on YouTube. The song is a recreated version of "Dilbar" from the 1999 film "Sirf Tum". Nora also made an Arabic version of it.
"'Dilbar' is very close to me. It was a turning point in my career. I was travelling a lot during the release of 'Dilbar' to various countries and the song would be played at random places like lounges, coffee shops, streets and I realised the song had reached levels that was beyond India.
"They may not know the language, but they were enjoying it. When I came back to India for the promotional activity of the song, it struck me that we should do an Arabic version of the song because I come from Arabic North African background and my fans from that region follow my work loyally. I thought this was the perfect time to give the love back to them with something that they can connect more due to the same language.
"I also look at it in a way that it is a proud moment for the nation too because they have a Hindi song which has been remade in another language now."
