Films capture journeys but in Imtiaz Ali's much-awaited HIGHWAY, the journey has made the film. Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala, starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, director Imtiaz Ali traversed six states of north India and captured the scenic landscape of the different regions as it goes along. Besides, he has explored the rough terrain to amazing locales in HIGHWAY.
ALIA BHATT IN HIGHWAY
Interestingly, a part of the film was shot in a salt factory in Sambhar (Rajasthan). Alia along with other actors of the film shot for the film there. Born and brought up in a city like Mumbai, the world of Sambhar, where anything and everything has more than a pinch of salt, was a revelation for the young star, Alia Bhatt.
'HIGHWAY took me to all these amazing places that I probably wouldn't have ever seen otherwise. Sambhar, the salt factory, was the most beautiful and the weirdest experience for me. I celebrated my birthday there as well...in many ways, I think it was here that I truly started feeling like Veera (my character in the film),'says Alia.
HIGHWAY, Imtiaz Ali's first production, is all set to hit the screens on February 21, 2014.
