A still from NH10

Riteish Deshmukh and Nikhil Dwivedi have hailed Anushka Sharma as Bollywood's new 'angry young woman'

Actress Anushka Sharma's new film NH10 may have found little favour with the Censor Board which first refused certification and then passed it with nine edits, but her Bollywood colleagues have nothing but high praise for both the film and Anushka's performance.

Several industrywallahs attended special screenings of the Navdeep Singh-directed film, also starring Neil Bhoopalam and Darshan Kumaar. Here's what they said on Twitter. (Also Read: In Strongly Worded Letter, Censor Board Member Slams NH10 Cuts)

From Ayushmann Khurrana, Aditi Rao Hydari and Nikhil Dwivedi:

NH10, which has opened to great reviews, is doubly special for Anushka who also produces as well as stars in the film.

NDTV's Saibal Chatterjee wrote in his review: "The focus of NH10 is primarily on the harried figure that is fleshed out by co-producer and lead actress Anushka Sharma. She bears the burden rather well, conveying a range of moods as she moves from the vulnerable to the fearless in a battle in which the odds are stacked heavily against her." (Movie Review: NH10)

The events of NH10 take place on a road trip taken by the characters played by Anushka and Neil and which turns deadly after an encounter with a group of violent criminals lead by Darshan.
