Varun Dhawan: Alia Bhatt is Robert De Niro of our generation

The Main Tera Hero actor said that Alia has grown as an actor

Praising his Student Of The Year and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania co-star Alia Bhatt, actor Varun Dhawan has said she’s the Robert De Niro of their generation in Bollywood.

“I found her brilliant in Highway. A performance like (hers in) Highway is very difficult in any age. I think she is someone you get to learn from. She is the Robert De Niro of our generation,” Varun said here Sunday.

Alia and Varun made their debut together with Student of the Year in 2012. Since then, Alia has featured in films like Highway and 2 States.

“I think in our generation, if any actress has shown immense growth from her first film, then she is Alia Bhatt, definitely,” said Varun outside Cinemax Theatre, where he went with Alia to witness the audience’s response to their latest release Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
