In an interview to Deccan Chronicle, Nora Fatehi admitted that she is all set to enter the Bigg Boss house. The Moroccan beauty said that she is not attached to materialistic things, but she will badly miss food from her house and her best friend inside the house.

She added that she is impressed with the stint of Iranian model Mandana Karimi, who was successful in stealing the show inside the house.

"Mandana has caught my attention. Despite being a foreigner she's holding the house down and is able to take control. In the past foreign contestants like Natasa Stankovic and Hazel Keech would just blend in background because their Hindi was not that good but in Mandana's case she doesn't care and gets herself noticed," Nora Fatehi told DC.

Some think that being a wildcard is an advantage for contestants, but Nora Fatehi has a different take on it. She says she has to struggle hard to win audiences' hearts. "I feel bad for them. They have been there since 50 days. There are two months left but then I can say I didn't have that much time to impress the audience. I will have to actually work harder to connect with viewers," Nora said.

Nora Fatehi says she is entering the Bigg Boss 9 house without having any big expectations and it will be a fun time for her. "I haven't put a lot of thought into it. I'm just going to go in bindaas. I'm not going in to fight, just to have fun but I won't let anyone walk all over me. Although even if I do get into a fight, I don't believe in dragging it," she said, when quizzed about her expectations.

Born in Canada, Nora Fatehi began her acting career with the Bollywood film "Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans". Later, she has featured in some item songs in Telugu movies like "Temper", "Baahubali: The Beginning", "Kick 2" and "Sher" and Hindi film "Mr.X". She will be next seen shaking her legs in Telugu flicks "Loafer" and "Oopiri".
