Mumbai: After `Rockstar`, director Imtiaz Ali and music maestro A R Rahman are coming together again for Ali`s next film `Highway`.
To be presented by Sajid Nadiadwala, the romantic drama is being shot in real locations across different parts of north India and stars Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda in the lead.
"There`s a story in your heart for years, a world you can`t wait to get into - that`s Highway. The grace flowed in as soon as I decided to go on this journey- Rahman sir agreed to join. I feel this movie needs him more than ever before. Then we got the ideal cast - Alia and Randeep, and the ideal crew," Ali said in a statement.
Rahman, on his part, is happy to be back with the `Rockstar` team.
"It`s a highway journey this time; with the same good company of Imtiaz and lyricist Irshad Kamil," said the double Oscar winner.
Sajid Nadiadwala 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."
Highway is being shot by Anil Mehta and the sound is being designed by Resul Pookutty.
