Even as fans are buzzing about actor Ranbir Kapoor's performance as Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani's biopic, Sanju (2018), the actor is receiving praise from another special person. Kapoor's Brahmastra (2019) co-star, Alia Bhatt, praised his performance after attending a screening in Mumbai. Terming the film 'outstanding', the actress said she would mark the film in her 'top 10 best film' list. 

In a quote to IANS, Bhatt said, "I really liked it. It is a fantastic, fabulous and an outstanding film. I think in my top 10 best film list, Sanju is high up there. Ranbir is outstanding in it."

The comments come at a time that the two have been linked together with dating rumours. In May this year, Kapoor, in an interview, confirmed the relationship, saying, "As an actor, as a person, Alia is – what’s the right word? – flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit."

The actress also reserved special praise for director Hirani saying, "I am really big fan of Rajkumar Hirani so whenever his films come out, I cannot wait to see it and every time, he manages to hit it out of the park. It is one of the best films that we have right now in the past couple of years." 

Sanju has already managed a tremendous box office opening earning Rs34 crore nett on its Friday debut.

Bhatt and Kapoor have fuelled rumours with appearances together at Shloka Mehta and Akash Ambani's engagement ceremony. The actors will soon make an appearance in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra next year.
