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 in an e-mail interview from Mumbai: “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 the actor, who plays a street rapper in the film.

Ranveer proudly says Alia “could very well be the best part of ‘Gully Boy'”.
