She's not only the film's leading lady but Alia Bhatt has sung one of the songs in Imtiaz Ali's soon to release film, HIGHWAY. With this Alia joins the bandwagon of actors who turned singers like Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Farhan Akhtar and others

The music of the film has been composed by the maestro A. R. Rahman and he's got Alia to sing a very soulful lullaby, 'Sooha Saha'. Zeb Bangash, of the famous Pakistani duo Zeb & Haniya, has also sung in the song.

In the film Veera (Alia's character) and Mahabir (played by Randeep) take the road and traverse through six states of northern India. As the journey moves from the plains of Punjab to the hills of Himachal, Veera sings this lullaby, which reminds Mahabir of his childhood. Both Imtiaz and Rahman agreed that if Alia sang a stanza herself, it would add more poignance to the scene.

'We have this lullaby, 'Sooha Saha' in HIGHWAY. Imtiaz said Alia has a great voice and I didn't trust him. Then she learned the song and sang to me and I was pretty impressed with her natural ability too. We guided her little bit to perfect the singing. She did it twice and then we got it almost right and now it sounds great,' says A R Rahman

An excited Alia Bhatt adds, 'It was unreal.. I am a bathroom singer but to have the opportunity to sing a song composed by Rahman sir was unbelievable...This film is so close to my heart.''

HIGHWAY, produced by Window Seat Films and presented by Sajid Nadiadwala, will be released worldwide by UTV Motion Pictures. The music of the film will be available on T-Series.

HIGHWAY will release worldwide on 21st February, 2014.
