Jab We Met director Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming film ‘Highway’, starring Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt, will release in theatres a week before Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3.
In a statement released to the media, producer Sajid Nadiadwala said “Highway will release on December 13th 2013. Come to think of it, it was only last December that we agreed to go ahead with the film. And to start the shoot in March and then stick to the schedule despite being such a tough shoot is quite incredible”
Highway traverses across the roads of 6 Indian states and has music by Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman, who has been trying to match the film musically to the varied vistas of the film – from Punjab to Kashmir, Delhi to Rajasthan and Haryana to Himachal Pradesh.
A source close the project says “HIghway will be a landmark film in Alia Bhatt’s career. As soon as Imtiaz met Alia, he knew that she suited the character very well. After Kareena as Geet in ‘Jab We Met’ and Deepika as Meera in ‘Love Aaj Kal’, it will be Alia as Veera in ‘Highway'”
The second shooting schedule of the film is currently in progress. Here’s wishing the cast and the crew the very best.
Highway Release Date – December 13th 2013.
