Imtiaz Ali's next film Highway, starring Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt, will hit the screens on December 13th. The movie is currently in its second schedule.
Sajid Nadiadwala, who is presenting and releasing Highway worldwide, is very excited about the project.
"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 schedules despite being such a tough shoot is quite incredible," Nadiadwala said in a statement.
The movie traverses across the roads of six Indian states and has music by maestro AR Rahman, who has been trying to match the film musically to the varied vistas of the film - from Delhi to Rajasthan, Haryana to Himachal, Punjab to Kashmir.
Highway is a project very close to Ali, known for movies like Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal and Rockstar.
After Kareena Kapoor as Geet in Jab We Met and Deepika Padukone as Meera in Love Aaj Kal, this time Alia Bhatt will be seen as Veera. (with IANS inputs)

It should stay untouched: Alia Bhatt
A while back, actor-director Pooja Bhatt made headlines by stating that she would love to remake the 1991 hit, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahi, with sister Alia reprising her role from the original. However, Alia feels that Pooja should refrain from remaking the iconic rom-com.
“Pooja has merely mentioned that if she ever wanted to remake Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi, which I think she shouldn’t, she would want me in it. But nothing of that sort is happening, so it (talks about the remake) has no weight yet. I personally reckon that the film is simply untouchable. I am a great fan of that movie,” says Alia.
