Both are really special to me: Alia Bhatt on working with Ranbir in Brahmastra and Ranveer in Gully Boy

Here's what she said

Alia Bhatt is gearing up for an exciting phase of her career as she is all set to appear onscreen with two special co-stars – Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor – in Gully Boy and Brahmastra respectively. At the trailer launch event of Gully Boy in Mumbai on Wednesday, Alia was asked about the differences and similarities in Ranveer and Ranbir and her experience of working with them.

Both are great actors, Alia said, adding that Ranveer and Ranbir are really special to her. “There are several similarities between Ranveer and Ranbir. Both are superb human beings and outstanding actors. Both are really special for me. The only difference is that with one, I am doing Gully Boy, and with the other, Brahmastra,” Alia said at the event.

But it didn’t end at just that as Ranveer concluded Alia’s statement by teasing her, “One is a bit more special.” In case you didn’t get the joke, Ranveer was referring to Ranbir, who is dating Alia.

Last year, Ranbir, during an interview with a leading magazine, addressed rumours of his affair with Alia and confessed about his relationship with her. Ranbir and Alia co-star in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, scheduled for release in 2019.

As far as Gully Boy is concerned, Zoya Akhtar’s film casts Ranveer as a street rapper from Mumbai while Alia stars as a medical student and his love interest. Kalki Koechlin also appears in the film.

Gully Boy is scheduled to release on February 14.
