Highway Diaries bring alive the folk music of the Highway

- The film Highway, starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, was shot on real locations across 6 north Indian states. What is interesting is that director Imtiaz Ali has incorporated the folk music that is typically heard while one is on such highway trips, in the film . So as you will see in this Highway Diary, the crew shot with the local 'Manganiyar' folk singers in Bikaner- Sawan Khan & his group. A 'pahadi gojari' folk song sung by a local artist , Begum Jaan, was similarly recorded in Kashmir and will be heard in the film too. It will be seen in one of the Highway diaries coming soon.
