Outstanding!" For Alia, who was launched in Bollywood by Karan Johar, he added: "What do I say about the girl wonder Alia, who explodes like a volcano every time she appears on screen! You wait for her and worry about her next move with joy and excitement! She is so so so brilliant! I think Safeena deserves a spin-off film of her own!"

I have just witnessed a cult classic that has possibly the best ensemble of actors we have seen this decade... @ranveersingh delivers the loudest quiet performance oscillating between silence and storm and you are left awestruck by his immense versatility and ability to sink his teeth into every single character....he makes you feel every beat of Murad's beats! Outstanding!! What do I say about the girl wonder @aliaabhatt who explodes like a volcano every time she appears on screen! You wait for her and worry about her next move with joy and excitement! !
