"There's a story in your heart for years, a world you can't wait to get into - that's Highway," said Imtiaz.

Then we got the ideal cast - Alia and Randeep, and the ideal crew."
Rahman echoes his director's feeling. "It's a highway journey this time; with the same good company of Imtiaz and lyricist Irshad Kamil," remarked the double Oscar winner. For Sajid Nadiadwala, it was an association he had to be part of. He said, "Highway will again be an all-new musical experience for fans of A.R. Rahman and who other than Imtiaz Ali to bring them to life on screen. I am delighted to present the film."

The story grips me completely. Alia is responding beautifully, Randeep is a fantastic actor. I am very excited about the locations we are shooting in. It's very comforting that Sajid Nadiadwala is standing behind us." says Imtiaz.
