 Randeep Hooda in a recent conversation with Humans of Bombay opened up about his experience working with Alia Bhatt during the filming of Imtiaz Ali's 2014 movie, Highway. Hooda revealed that Bhatt was initially “terrified” of him on the sets of the movie, and he made sure to maintain that fear to enhance their performances.

Hooda shared that he didn't speak to Alia for the first 20-25 days of shooting Highway. He explained that Alia, coming from a privileged background in Juhu, had limited exposure to the world, which added to her fear of his character in the film. Hooda stated, "So, to keep her fear of my character in place… she used to be terrified of me. I made sure of that. I never spoke to her. She wouldn’t come to sit next to me also. That’s the effect we wanted in the movie."

The actor's revelation sheds light on the dedication and method behind their performances, which were crucial for the film's narrative. Highway, known for its exploration of freedom and self-discovery, required both actors to delve deep into their characters, and Hooda's approach seems to have contributed to the authentic portrayal of their roles.

Apart from discussing his experience with Alia Bhatt, Randeep Hooda also touched upon the impact of his roles in movies like Main Aur Charles and Sarbjit on his personal life. He shared that filming Sarbjit brought him closer to Sarabjit's sister, Dalbir Kaur, and they remained in touch until her passing. He even lit her funeral pyre, highlighting the deep bond they shared.

Randeep Hooda's upcoming project, Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, where he plays the titular role of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, is highly anticipated. The biographical film, directed by Hooda himself, also stars Ankita Lokhande, Amit Sial, Rajesh Khera, Lokesh Mittal, and Brajesh Jha. Scheduled to release soon, the film promises to be another remarkable addition to Hooda's versatile filmography.
