Bollywood actress Radhika Apte has praised British star Olivia Colman, whom she found "phenomenal" in the 2011 film Tyrannosaur.

"Finally saw Tyrannosaur. I think its one of my favourite films. And Olivia Colman is f**king phenomenal. So inspired Paddy Considine," Radhika tweeted on Monday. 

Written and directed by Paddy Considine, Tyrannosaur also stars Peter Mullan, Eddie Marsan, Paul Popplewell and Sally Carman.

The film tells the story of an angry, violent alcoholic (Mullan) who finds respite with a devout woman (Colman) whose husband abuses her.

In other news, the Badlapur actress will soon be seen in Bombairiya, which also features actor Shakti Kapoor’s son Siddhanth Kapoor.
