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, we are in the recording studio with the Nooran sisters of Punjab, who have sung the ‘Patakha Guddi’ song, picturised on Alia in the film. Jyoti and Sultana Nooran, who are famous for their free-style sufi singing, have been picked by music maestro A.R. Rahman for this energetic number. In the video lyricist Irshad Kamil reads out the words of the song to the sisters and they cut loose behind the microphone, as director Imtiaz Ali watches intently.
