Directed and written by Imtiaz, 'Highway' was the story of a girl who developed Stockholm syndrome after being kidnapped. During an interview with Telegraph, Imtiaz stated it took him almost 15 years to bring the story on the canvas. "Highway has been a story that has stayed with me for 15 years. There was something in it that didn't die. Usually, you lose interest in a story beyond a certain point. But with Highway, there was something very subtle," he said.
The filmmaker had also stated once that initially, he was looking out for an older actress to match up with Hooda. However, the role went to Alia that made an effect on his film script.
