Alia, Randeep and Imtiaz talk about Highway, Valentine’s Day and more…
Before the release of her highly anticipated movie, Highway, Alia Bhatt, along with Randeep Hooda and Imtiaz Ali paid a visit to a leading newspaper’s office. Here, they spoke about Valentine’s Day, the importance of social media and why you should watch Highway. Alia, who debuted with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year in a glamorous role as Shanaya will be seen in a rustic avatar in Imtiaz Ali’s Highway.
Meanwhile, Randeep, when questioned about Valentine’s Day called it an ‘useless day’, while Alia retorted saying, “I don’t believe in Valentine’s Day at all”. Randeep even advised the audience not to waste time and money on this day.
Talking about Highway, Alia summarised the experience as challenging and worthwhile. She said, ” In terms of contrast with SOTY, I did not have to wear heels or make-up, but the character was well layered and challenging”.
Talking about her competition with Parineeti Chopra, the Bhatt girl clarified her stance. She said that there was no competition whatsoever and she had even seen Parineeti’s latest flick Hasee toh Phasee and loved it.
Imtiaz Ali’s next is with Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor tentatively titled Window-Seat as per reports. In this regard, Imtiaz said, “Right now, I am focusing on Highway and how the audience reacts to it. We have put in a lot of efforts in dangerous locales shooting for this movie”.
When asked about which movie they would like to watch besides Highway, all three of them said, Gunday in unison. While Alia was gushing about the promos, Randeep called it the modern day Sholay. Quite a comparison!
