Amitabh Bachchan previously praised Rajkummar Rao’s performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi.

Actor Amitabh Bachchan says Rajkummar Rao’s latest release Newton was an eye opener and a treat to watch.

Amitabh on Friday lauded the film on Twitter and expressed that Newton shows reality.

“Saw the film ‘Newton’... its stark reality was a treat to watch ! An eye opener on many aspects!” he tweeted.

Starring National Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao, Newton revolves around a young government clerk who is sent on election duty to a Maoist-controlled town and how the ideological struggle puts him in an awkward situation.

Rajukummar replied to Amitabh by saying: “Thank you so much sir. We all are so grateful for your love & support. Keep inspiring us with ur amazing performances. Charan Sparsh.”

Directed by Amit Masurkar, Newton released on Friday.

Rajkummar will soon be seen in other projects like Love Sonia, 5Weddings, Ittefaq: It Happened One Night and Fanney Khan.

Amitabh, 74, who is currently hosting season nine of Kaun Banega Crorepati, has two films in his kitty -- Thugs Of Hindostan and 102 Not Out.
