Ranveer told IANS in an e-mail interview from Mumbai that he is an ardent admirer of his "Gully Boy" co-star Alia Bhatt's work.
Ranveer said, "Before working on 'Gully Boy', I did some ads with Alia and they were really fun. She has lovely energy about her. But when I worked with her on 'Gully Boy', I realized what a powerhouse of a talent she is."
"She has evolved as a person far beyond her years. She is on her way to greatness. She was really brilliant in 'Raazi'. I have been an admirer of her work and craft ever since 'Highway'," he added.
He continued, “Alia is 'immensely talented, expressive, full of emotion, very intelligent' and that her emotional quotient is 'very high'”.
