Happy New Year, Queen, Highway and Haider were the major winners at the awards
Newcomer Neha Yadav, an alumnus of Subhash Ghai's Whistling Woods International Institute, says that the filmmaker might be going through a rough phase, but his recent string of flop movies can't take away his past accolades.
Alia Bhatt, who was like a breath of fresh air in Highway, shot in picturesque locations across the country, says she hoped to make an impact as Veera, but the unprecedented praise for Imtiaz Ali directed road movie has surpassed her expectations.
Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali says it was "overwhelming" to announce the first show of his movie at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, where it had its world premiere.
Alia Bhatt is busy promoting Highway these days, but she is equally upbeat about her other film 2 States. The actress loves the Chetan Bhagat book that the movie is based on.
Like the characters in his movies, Imtiaz Ali was in the realm of uncertainty while shooting his road saga Highway through six different states of India with a handheld camera and a raw script.
From acting to crooning in their own movies, Bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Juhi Chawla and Farhan Akhtar have always been a step ahead of their contemporaries.
Alia Bhatt, who travelled across six states in north India for her next film Highway, says the experience of working in the movie has turned out to be an "experience she never had".
Director Imtiaz Ali, known for making romantic movies, says he had thought of making his upcoming film Highway in various genres including action.
In spite of barely being a film old, actress Alia Bhatt seems to have found her place in filmdom.
Actors Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, who got their big break in Bollywood with the 2012 movie Student Of The Year (SOTY), came together to perform at an event.
Actress Alia Bhatt, who donned an ultra-glamorous avatar for her debut film Student Of The Year (SOTY) last year, has gone de-glam for her upcoming film Highway. She says the movie is a challenging opportunity.
