Actor Ranveer Singh is all praise for his Gully Boy co-star Alia Bhatt. On working with Alia in the upcoming film, Ranveer told IANS, “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 realised what a powerhouse of a talent she is.”

Ranveer, who has delivered blockbusters like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, said Alia is “immensely talented, expressive, full of emotion, very intelligent” and that her emotional quotient is “very high.”

“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,” added Ranveer, who plays a street rapper.

Also featuring actor Kalki Koechlin, Zoya Akhtar-directed Gully Boy is a film about Indian street rappers and their struggles. The film’s official trailer was released on Wednesday and shows the actor in the role of an up and coming rapper who sets out to achieve his dream by rhyming about his life on the Mumbai streets.

Ranveer proudly says Alia “could very well be the best part of Gully Boy”. “She plays the character, that on the script level, is my favourite character. She has really made it her own, and I’m very happy for her,” he added.

Gully Boy is scheduled to release on February 14.
