Imtiaz Ali‘s obsession with Northern cities is well known to all. And with Highway, the director went a step ahead and took us on the most spectacular trip from Delhi to Himachal Pradesh to the snow-clad mountains of Kashmir. We’d be surprised if the film didn’t make you want to go on a road trip too.
Shot extensively in Kashmir, the film painted a beautiful picture of the region on the screen for the masses. From snow-capped mountains to the memerizing Dal Lake, the film was lauded for it’s beautiful cinematography.
Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
If there’s one film that made us desperately take up trekking, it was Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. Though the scenes were actually shot in Kashmir, Ayan Mukerji‘s direction compelled you to take a trip to the whole of up North and experience it yourself.
Jab We Met
Remember the song Yeh Ishq Haaye? It was not just Kareena’s dance that sizzled things up in the song but also the beauty and serenity of Rohtang Pass. Just more fodder for the traveler’s soul by Imtiaz Ali.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan
After shooting for Dil Se.., Shah Rukh Khan returned to mesmerizing Ladakh after several years for Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Yash Chopra who was known for his cinematography skills captured Ladakh like never before.
