Actress Churni Ganguly, who has many critically acclaimed movies to her credit in the Bengali film industry, is looking forward to the release of filmmaker Karan Johar’s upcoming directorial Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. Ahead of the big day, Churni Ganguly spoke to News18 and expressed her joy for all the love that is coming her way for the film. Among other things, the Bengali actress also spoke about Alia Bhatt, who plays her daughter Rani in the film, therefore dismissing trolls who often call the Gangubai Kathiawadi star a product of nepotism. Praising Alia Bhatt for her acting prowess, Churni Ganguly said, “Alia is one of those performers who’s extremely talented.”
Putting an end to the nepotism debate, the actress noted, “People speak about nepotism. There’s so much being said. I think nepotism only becomes relevant if the actor isn’t up to the mark and lacks talent. But that’s not the case with Alia.”
Heaping praises on Alia for her portrayal of Rani Chatterjee in the film, the Drishtikone actor said, “She has proved so film after film. She gets into the skin of her roles just like that. She brings life to a role that she plays. She did the same even in this film. We improvised a lot in some of our scenes and a lot of that came from Alia as well.”
Meanwhile, the lead pair of Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is currently busy with promotional duties. After cooking up a storm with their electrifying presence in Vadodara, Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh AKA Rocky and Rani and their Kahaani visited Delhi on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Alia Bhatt treated her fans to pictures of herself and Ranveer Singh from their Delhi trip. For the occasion, Alia Bhatt dressed the part (as Rani ) yet again in a stunning shaded peach saree while Ranveer Singh complemented her in a black suit. Sharing a couple of images, Alia Bhatt captioned the post, “Dil wali Delhi mai apni Kahaani lekar aaye hai Rocky aur Rani (Rocky and Rani have arrived in Delhi with their story).”
