Alia Bhatt

's Highway is set to release this Friday and the one film-old actor is all excited.

Alia considers herself really lucky to have worked with directors Karan Johar and

Imtiaz Ali

even as her only second movie is set to hit theaters.

In an interview, Alia said, "Every actor wants to work with Imtiaz Ali. I am very grateful that I got to work with him in my second film."

Talking about her experience of working with

Randeep Hooda

and Imtiaz, Alia said, "I stole the best from both Randeep and Imtiaz."

Stole? "While one is one of best directors in the industry, the other is a fine actor and I learnt a lot from the duo," she explained.

"Toughest part of shooting


was the physical exhaustion that my body went through. But I really enjoyed the travelling. I also enjoyed the fact that I didn't have to worry about how I was looking," Alia said.

Talking about her singing debut, Alia said, "When Imtiaz heard me singing, he said you should sing for the movie and the next thing I knew, I was in

AR Rahman

's studio."

"I have been really lucky because not every actor gets to sing for Rahman," Alia added.
