AR Rahman, who is behind the soundtrack of Imtiaz Ali’s Highway, has also sung a song titled Maahive for it. The filmmaker says he is surprised by how the Oscar winning composer manages to get a pulse of a movie’s soul so well.
“Maahive is coming more from Rahman sir than from Irshad or me. This is one of the songs that Rahman sir makes and one wonders how does he get the soul of the the story so beautifully,” Ali said in a statement.
Written by IrshadKamil, the soft romantic number Maahive is picturised on Veera, played by Alia Bhatt, and Mahabir, essayed by RandeepHooda – two strangers who come close to each other because of the circumstances.
“Maahive was not a part of the original brief, but I cannot imagine the film or the album of Highway without it,” added Ali.
Maahive is the second song to be launched from the Highway album after Patakhaguddi, which signifies the free spirit of a girl.
Highway, produced by Window Seat Films and presented by SajidNadiadwala, will be released worldwide by UTV Motion Pictures on February 21.
