It's raining accolades in her backyard. Alia Bhatt has been snowed under an avalanche of praise for her portrayal of Veera in HIGHWAY.

''I'm so happy that Alia has managed to deliver such a terrific performance in her second film itself,'' gushed Bhatt. ''It's the kind of performance that an actress delivers after doing a couple of films. I think all the credit goes to the director Imtiaz Ali, because unless he had a clear vision, he could not have extracted such a performance from Alia.'

Confessing to being astonished himself at the acting prowess and vocal skills of Alia, daddy Bhatt revealed, ''I don't know when so much of creativity crept into her system. I didn't know Alia could sing so well! We didn't know when Goddess Sarawati entered our house and placed Her hand on Alia's shoulder!''
