Despite a really challenging shoot across six Indian states, HIGHWAY wrapped up proceedings eight days in advance. Although the entire shoot was planned for 60 days, Imtiaz and team finished the same in 52 days. Along the way they had to face extreme weather conditions and negotiate very difficult terrain. From the sub-zero temperatures of snow-clad upper Himachal to the near 50 degree centigrade highs in the last schedule in Gurgaon; from bus and train travel in Rajashtan to hotels with no electricity or water in Kaza (Himachal) and treacherous treks in heavy rains in Kashmir, there were roadblocks all along the 'Highway'. Yet the passion and commitment were such that the shoot was completed well within time.

"The shooting of Highway was fast and furious and the completion of shooting was an emotional event for the unit. We have shot this film at unusual places we have had to support and help each other very often to get by because many places were too remote to have facilities. HIGHWAY united all of us. We have had a charmed journey. We hope the audience has the same," said Imtiaz Ali.

Says Alia, "The experience of shooting for HIGHWAY was intense and extremely fulfilling. If I start talking about the film I won't stop, so I'd rather save my emotions for myself to know."
