A R Rahman to shoot a music video for Imtiaz Ali’s Highway

The maestro has not just composed and sung melodious tunes for the film, but he has also shot for a video of a number

The original Patakha guddi was the first song to be launched from the Highway soundtrack. Written by Irshad Kamil and sung by the Nooran sisters from Punjab, it is picturised on Alia Bhatt. The song’s male version is likely to have been sung by A R Rahman, who has also crooned a romantic number Maahi ve for the movie.

“Imtiaz directing a music video with me for Highway, for the male version of Patakha guddi. Do wait for ten days,” Rahman posted along with a photograph on his Facebook page Sunday.

The photograph also features the film’s leading lady, Alia, and they are seen sitting in a truck.

Highway, produced by Window Seat Films and presented by Sajid Nadiadwala, will be released worldwide by UTV Motion Pictures February 21. The music of the film will be available on T-Series.
