Bhatt also shared unseen pictures from the film's set and asked her fans to name their favourite song from the album.

Though not a blockbuster, 'Highway' was appreciated for its performances, music, Irshad Kamil's lyrics and Ali's story.

This was Ali's fifth directorial, after films like 'Rockstar', 'Love Aaj Kal' and 'Jab We Met'.
