|SHOOTING FOR HIGHWAY IN BIKANER- SAWAN KHAN ‘MANGANIYAR’ |
AND HIS GROUP OF FOLK SINGERS
Shooting across real locations has been quite a trend & pretty common in Bollywood but having the touch of live folk music is altogether a different experience! Well, all this can be experienced in Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming film HIGHWAY, starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, which was shot on real locations across six north Indian states. Interestingly, director Imtiaz Ali has incorporated the folk music that is typically heard while one is on such highway trips, in the film.
The crew shot with the local ‘Manganiyar’ folk singers in (a famous city of Rajasthan) Bikaner- Sawan Khan & his group. A ‘pahadi gojari’ folk song sung by a local artist, Begum Jaan, was similarly recorded in Kashmir and will be heard in the film too.
