‘Highway’ started out as a Randeep film and ended up being Alia’s movie
The year 2014 started on a great note with Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’, a super awesome film. And despite the film doing average business, both Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda’s performance were much appreciated, especially Alia, who was booed in her first film SOTY. The young babe hogged the entire limelight.
But guess what Hooda thinks of Alia. If we may add, he seemed a bit pissed with the fact that he wasn’t given any credit for Highway’s success?
In a recent interview to a popular tabloid, Randeep was asked to say something about the film, he said, “It could have been promoted better. Highway started out as a Randeep Hooda film and ended up being Alia’s movie. Highway was the first film where she got to act a little. Maybe if Imtiaz Ali had gone the other way, he would have made more money. But once I finish with a film, I hate going back to it.”
He added, “It was Alia’s second film and took her to parts of India she’d never seen before. I’ve seen that India before. So, for me Highway was just a good movie. I’ve done other good movies like Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, Jism 2, Murder 3, but somehow I have never got credit for their success. Bollywood is a funny world. That’s why I like sports better; you either win or lose there!”
