Alia Bhatt has found a cheerleader in Karan Johar. After watching Alia’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, Karan has reviewed the film and has called it “unbiased.” He shared a photo of Alia Bhatt as Gangubai and wrote, “To say that she is breathtaking..to say that she is stupendous… to say that she is by far one of the best actors we have or have ever had is not just stating a fact but still not saying enough about her brilliance! Alia Bhatt what are you? Yes, this is unbiased and from my heart! Sanjay Bhansali is a magician and she has performed his every celluloid trick with precision and perfection! #gangubaikathiawadi.”
Not just this, Karan Johar also praised Sanjay Leela Bhansali and tweeted that Gangubai Kathiawadi “is going to be a massive hit.” His tweet reads, “Sanjay Bhansali weaves his magic like a bonafide movie maverick and @aliaa08 is perfection! Stupendous! Beyond brilliant! And that is still not saying enough! Epic performance! #GangubaiKathiawadi is going to be a massive hit! The movies are back!!!!” Check out Karan Johar’s tweet:
