Filmmaker Karan Johar heaped praise on Rajkummar Rao, one of the most talented and versatile actors of this age, after watching the trailer of his upcoming Bollywood film 'Newton'.
The ace director took to his Twitter handle and appreciated the work of 'trapped' star and wrote, "Such a good trailer! And what a super talent @RajkummarRao is....."
After winning the Jury Prize for Best Film at the Hong Kong International Film Festival, the trailer of 'Newton' was released 29 August.
