Imtiaz Ali’s next movie Highway is slated to release . The excitement and the buzz is everywhere and the audience is eagerly waiting to watch this movie in theaters. No surprise, the trailer of the movie is quite interesting and the songs are really fun to listen. One of the most striking aspects of the film is the casting of this road romance. Veera (Alia Bhatt) and Mahabir (Randeep Hooda) will be seen falling in love over a road trip and discovering their own self. Sounds like a perfect coming-of-age romance and discovering the true essence of life, and that too when you expect it the least!
Yesterday the whole cast and crew of Highway gathered at Mehboob Studios in Bandra to meet the press and promote the film. Imtiaz Ali, Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda were present at the venue and talked about their experiences of making the movie. They said that shooting for Highway was real fun and learning experience for them. Further, Imtiaz said travelling is at the heart of the movie and occupies center stage when it comes to the story of Highway. Two people from different backgrounds who take a road trip through six states and end up falling in love. Sounds like the signature romance which is seen in Imtiaz Ali’s movies like Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met. Songs of highway such as ‘Sooha saha’(sung by Alia Bhatt) and ‘Patakha Gudi ‘have already become quite popular and people are already humming it. A.R. Rahman has composed the music of the movie.
The previous film ‘Rockstar‘ had some really great tracks and it seems that this time the music is on its way to being called chartbusters. By now, almost everyone has seen the trailer of the film which instantly reminds us of the folk and rural side of India; constantly speaking on the behalf of charm which is missing in the life of urban India. A travelogue by the name Highway Diaries has also been shot and is showcased on YouTube. For now, the stars are busy promoting Highway; as the release date – 21st Feb is quite near. We hope that Highway manages to enthrall the audience again with its heart-warming tale of romance discovered while traveling through six states of our very own India.
