Sajid Nadiadwala is a very happy man with Imtiaz Ali's Highway
turning out to be a super hit and
profitable for all stakeholders. The Alia Bhatt-Randeep Hooda starrer,
presented by Sajid was made at a cost of Rs. 18.25 cr (including P&A). The
movie has already clocked more than Rs 27 cr at the Indian box office and is
still running successfully across theatres. What is even more incredible is
that the film has garnered this collection from just 800 screens where it was
released. That apart, the film had made Rs 15.5 cr revenue even before release and
the international theatrical collection is more than Rs. 8 cr till date and
still counting, making the total revenue pie more than 50 cr.
Says Sajid: "It was both an honour and a
challenge when Imtiaz entrusted me with the big responsibility of Highway's
release. We worked with our distribution partners at UTV to give a the film an
appropriate release across 800 screens with carefully selected cities and
cinemas across the country."
