Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, who made his debut in the Marathi film industry with Umesh Kulkarni's 2011 film "Deool", has given the thumbs up to the director's latest venture "Highway - Ek Selfie Aarpaar" calling the forthcoming film an inspiring one. He says the Marathi film industry is seeing a revival time with such films.
"I really liked the film, it's inspiring. I have always liked all of Umesh's films. It feels good to see such a revival in Marathi cinema and such a good topic," Naseeruddin said in a statement.
"'Highway' is beautiful and unique, you need time to grasp film like this. I enjoyed it very much," Ratna said.
Calling it one of the best films he's seen in Marathi cinema, filmmaker Govind Nihalani said: "'Highway' is an important film in Marathi context. It's such a sophisticated film. 'Highway' takes Marathi cinema to a different dimension altogether. It raises the standard very high. One of the best films I have seen in Marathi."
Vinay shared that he "came to watch 'Highway' with few expectations and I'm glad that he proved me wrong. I was surprised how the film pleasantly unfolds, I loved how they have portrayed different worlds of different people. We don't get to watch such films and it was like reading good literature for me".
