Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub's work in the Vidya Balan and Rani Mukerji project No One Killed Jessica has been recognised by his co-stars and critics.

The actor, who played Jessica's killer in the partly-fictionalised retelling of the 1999 incident, has won praise for his performance as Manish Bhardwaj.

Ayyub told Digital Spy: "Although Vidya and I made it a point not to talk too much during the filming, at the screening and premiere, Vidya came to me three times to congratulate me. Rani also said I did a good job."

In its review of the film, The Times of India wrote that the theatre-trained actor "portrays his character with conviction", and critic Taran Adarsh described Ayyub as "very good".

"It is one of those rare movies that is being appreciated both at a critical and commercial level," said the debut star.

Raj Kumar Gupta's second directorial venture after Aamir is on general release now.
