Films capture journeys but in Imtiaz Ali’s much-awaited Highway, the journey has made the film. Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala and starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, the film traverses six states of north India and captures the landscape of the different regions as it goes along.
Highway Diaries, are short video snippets that capture the journey of the film and all the exciting experiences that the cast and crew had during its making.
In the latest episode of Highway Diaries titled ‘Sambhar Salt Pan’, Alia is seen shooting for the film in a salt factory in Sambhar (Rajasthan) along with other actors of the film. Born and brought up in a city like Mumbai, the world of Sambhar where anything and everything has more than a pinch of salt was a revelation for the young star. “Highway took me to all these amazing places that I probably wouldn’t have ever seen otherwise. Sambhar, the salt factory, was the most beautiful and the most weird experience for me. I celebrated my birthday there as well…in many ways, I think it was here that I truly started feeling like Veera (her character in the film),”says Alia.
