In the latest episode of Highway Diaries titled "Songs of the Valley", the director is seen with folk singer Begum Jaan and her group.
He looks engrossed in their music while shooting for "Highway" with Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt at Aru valley in Kashmir.
"...while it (the episode) should connect with the larger experience that Veera (Alia's character) has in the film, it should still be about that time and place and its music," Ali said in a statement.
Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film captures the landscape of the various regions in the country. The crew has already shot in Jammu, Delhi, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh and will bring it to the audience when it will come out Feb 21 next year.
