While the release date of 'Highway' is almost near (21st February 2014), we tell you an interesting detail about its maker, Imtiaz Ali.
Did you know, this project actually marks the debut of professional pairing i.e. Imtiaz Ali and Sajid Nadiadwala. This is the first time the duo has come together to work on a project.
Said Imtiaz, "I had a certain confidence (in Sajid's work). The kind of films he's done in the past, like Ghulami (1985) - one of my favourite films - are the kind of movies I'm making. That is what I think has interested him in Highway. I'm a director and he's (Sajid) a producer; the influence we had on each other is that now I've turned producer and he's turned director. I'm taking guidance from him."
Sajid Nadiadwala is not just excited about his first project with Imtiaz but he also hopes that the pairing continues for a really long time. Stated Sajid, "The best thing about Imtiaz is that I get ideas from him free of cost... I've discussed scenes with him from a film he's not even associated with. I've been a producer for 25 years, but as director, I'm a newcomer. The most important thing for me was to be part of the journey. I never comment on how the film is, but I'd say I'm happy with the outcome." Sajid Nadiadwala, who has worked with the biggest stars like Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar, will be seen investing in a lot of young talent this year.
Starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, the trailer and songs of 'Highway' have been loved by the audiences and there is a lot of buzz around the film.
