Highway Diaries bring alive the folk music of the ‘Highway’

Alia Bhatt Shooting for Highway at Aru Valley, Kashmir,   12-05-2013

The film Highway, starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, was shot on real locations across 6 north Indian states.

What is interesting is that director Imtiaz Ali has incorporated the folk music that is typically heard while one is on such highway trips, in the film.

As you see in this Highway Diary, the crew shot with the local ‘Manganiyar’ folk singers in Bikaner- Sawan Khan & his group.

A ‘pahadi gojari’ folk song sung by a local artist, Begum Jaan, was similarly recorded in Kashmir and will be heard in the film too. It will be seen in one of the Highway diaries coming soon.

Disney UTV will release Highway in UK cinemas.
