More than a year after ROCKSTAR, Imtiaz Ali is now gearing up to get going with HIGHWAY. However, despite the relevance and the significance of the film’s title, he isn’t going on an overdrive. Instead, he is taking his time before he summons his actors and starts calling the shots.

‘That’s the way he works. If at all he would have been a man in hurry, he would have signed half a dozen films after the success of JAB WE MET (2007). However, he waited for a couple of years before releasing LOVE AAJ KAL (2009). Post that he waited again for two more years for ROCKSTAR (2011) to arrive. It wasn’t planned that way for the Ranbir starrer but no one lost patience on the film,” says a close associate.
For HIGHWAY too, which he is doing with Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt, he isn’t rushing up things.

‘He and producer Sajid Nadiadwala are sure that they would be bringing the film on floors soon. In fact for Alia it would be a double whammy since she is currently also shooting for Nadiadwala’s 2 STATES. Ditto for Randeep who has a good role to play alongside Salman Khan in his KICK which would also be directed by Sajid,” informs a source.
Now with HIGHWAY expected to go on floors soon, one waits to see if Imtiaz manages to keep his record intact as far as releasing one film every two years is concerned and ends up bringing it on-screen this year itself.
