Imtiaz finds mixed response to Highway positive
Director Imtiaz Ali is not affected by the mixed response that his latest film Highway is fetching in theatres. In fact, he believes it just shows that his film is making people think. “I had to make this film and I made it, and put in my best. Mixed reactions mean that people are thinking,” the 42-year-old said here Saturday at a PVR Cinemas hall. Sounding nonchalant, the director said: “I have no problem with it. It’s good that there are mixed reactions. At least there are opinions. It is actually dangerous when people just say, ‘It’s good’,” he added. Imtiaz has co-produced Highway with Sajid Nadiadwala. The road movie stars Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda in lead roles.
Well, wethinks Ali should be worried about his latest, considering the kind of flattering response his earlier films received. We hope that this filmmaker is back to delivering films like Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met.
