Alia Bhatt-Randeep Hooda starrer Highway adapted from TV show Rishtey

Imtiaz Ali creates a full-fledged film out of a short story aired on Zee’s popular TV series Rishtey

Rockstar filmmaker Imtiaz Ali had directed an episode called Highway for the TV series Rishtey which was aired on Zee TV in the early 2000s. The story was about an affluent girl who gets abducted by a gang leader and their journey thereon. The story of Imtiaz’s next film Highway which releases on December 13 revolves around the same concept, of course with a much more detailed and a dramatic version of it. In fact Imtiaz was so fascinated by the story that he wanted it be his debut film. But seems like fate had some other plans; Ali confesses that he is in a much better frame of mind to do justice to this story now, at this phase of his career. We have great expectations from the talented filmmaker, let’s see if he lives up to our high hopes.
