Holding the Tricolour, the actress is saying, “Jai Hind!! Zor se, Zor Se Jai Hind!”.
She adds: “India is not part of the FIFA World Cup but we are now in spirits through our music and dance.”
It was not long when social media users noticed that she held the National flag upside down. She picked up the Indian flag from the stage that was lying, then waved it, but due to windy weather, the flag turned upside down.
Without realising, she held the flag clenched in her palms. Indians all over social media were unhappy and called out Nora for “disrespecting” the Indian flag.
