Films capture journeys but in Imtiaz Ali’s films often journeys make the film.
We had seen it in Jab We Met and now he is doing something similar in Highway. Starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, the film traverses six states of India and captures the landscape of the different regions as it goes along.
To go with the theme and style of the film, Imtiaz is launching short videos called Highway Diaries, which will provide a glimpse into the myriad experiences that the cast and crew went through during the shoot. One or two minute long these 18 to 20 episodes will be uploaded over the next couple of months on the Internet.
While the look of these videos has been kept close to that of the film, Imtiaz says they are not to be mistaken as the first look of Highway , the movie. “I have never seen a film being as influenced by the incidents of its making as Highway . These adventures of the road journey have many stories to tell,” says Imtiaz.
