In Highway, Alia Bhatt played Veera, a young bride-to-be, who is abducted by a petty criminal, Mahabir, played by Randeep Hooda. The film chronicled their journey from being total strangers to becoming a confidante after they reveal to each other about the dark secrets of their lives, which they veiled from the world.
The Imtiaz Ali-directed road drama was released in 2014, and Alia’s brilliant portrayal of a girl, who develops Stockholm syndrome after being abducted, was lauded by film critics. She had won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress, the same year.Speaking of her role, Alia told Indian Express, “Highway was definitely challenging for me, physically, and emotionally. I didn’t really prepare for it. Imtiaz wanted me to be as raw and untouched as possible. I had to be like a blank sheet of paper, ready to be written on, so the blanker the page, the better.”
Alia Bhatt, who was last seen in 2017’s Badrinath Ki Dulhania, has an amazing line-up of projects – Brahmastrawith Ranbir Kapoor, Gully Boy with Ranveer Singh and Raazi with Vicky Kaushal – in the pipeline.
