The 32-year-old 'Fitoor' actress, who watched the film at the special screening here last night, was impressed with the performances of Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.

"I thought it was a really outstanding film. Both Shahid and Alia have done an unbelievable job. Alia's performance is absolutely brilliant in the film. I think it is a beautiful movie," she told reporters.

"The director is passionate about the story he chose and he has done justice to it," Katrina added.    

The film stars Shahid as high-on-drugs rockstar Tommy Singh while Alia is seen as a Bihari migrant, who is an aspiring hockey player.

The Abhishek Chaubey-directed project, which was involved in a battle with the censor board, was leaked on the Internet two days before its release.

Katrina says the incident is a big tragedy as an immense amount of hardwork has gone behind a film.    

The actress joined other Bollywood celebrities including Aamir Khan, Karan Johar and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who appealed the audience to watch the movie only in theaters.

"I think this is a big tragedy. There is an incredible amount of work which has gone into the film. When you will see the film, hopefully in the cinema hall, you will appreciate it. I would urge people to not watch it online."
