The proud dad who attended the screening of 2 States was all praise for the film's director too. "Karan Johar should be very proud. He has an eye for talent. He gifts the nation with an outstanding writer/ director, Abhishek Verman," tweeted Bhatt.
The film is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller of the same name.
Alia earlier said in an interview that when she read the book for the first time, she felt it could be made into a good film.
“I knew Arjun was on board… but I never thought I will be part of the film. I got a call for a look test and the point being that I should look good with Arjun. I was hoping it comes to me and it did. It’s a big achievement for me," the Highway star had said.
