A little more salt for Alia along the "Highway"!

Alia Bhatt shot to fame with “Student of the Year,” but it seems that 2013 has been her ‘salt of the year’!  Shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s “Highway” has taken Alia Bhatt to several places around North India!  She’s gotten a chance to explore Kashmir, Punjab, and even Rajasthan – all locations that play an important role in the film.

One of the places the film’s shoots took place, happened to be near a salt factory in Sambhar (Jaipur).  Born and brought up in a city like Mumbai, the world of Sambhar, where anything and everything has over a pinch of salt, was a revelation for Alia.

Alia shared her experience with us,

“Highway took me to all these amazing places that I probably wouldn’t have ever seen otherwise. Sambhar, the salt factory was the most beautiful and the weirdest experience for me. I celebrated my birthday there as well… in many ways, I think it was here that I truly started feeling like Veera (her character in the film),” says Alia

“Highway” will be releasing in February of 2014!  Keep it locked to UrbanAsian for the scoop!
