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. 6 north Indian states! That sure is a lot of traveling and location sets!

Shooting for Highway in Bikaner- Sawan Khan 'Manganiyar' and his group  of folk singers, 23.03.2013

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.

Check out the clip from the Bikaner scene
