Bollywood's ultimate dancing sensation Nora Fatehi recently impressed her fans with recently-released music video 'Dance Meri Rani'.

Nora is currently basking in the success of the song in which she flaunts her killer dance moves. Her stunning avatar in the song was an ode to the African culture. She also turned into a mermaid for the song and can be seen wearing an ash blond, curly wig.

While some fans lauded her for the song, others compared her to singer Shakira.

In a recent interview with ETimes, Nora opened up about the comparisons with Shakira. The actress said that she loves Shakira and is heavily inspired by her.

Nora added that she would've appreciated if people accepted and celebrated the African beauty standards which they were trying to portray in 'Dance Meri Rani'. She said that there are a lot of African girls with curly hairs and Afros, and Shakira's not the only one.

Nora also clarified that they were not trying to copy her because she's not the only one with curly Afro hair. She said that even her mother, best friend and sister have curly Afro hair.

The actress further stated that with the curly hair look, she wanted to celebrate all the different girls in Africa who have curly hair, who are beautiful with that hair texture and simultaneously, know that even in India there are girls with curly beautiful hair.
