Imtiaz Ali's locations in his new film Highway are a treat for the eyes, and the senses. Never has India been captured so beautifully.

Picturesque locations are the soul of Imtiaz Ali's Highway.

In his latest film, a 20-something daughter of an affluent businessman is kidnapped by a group of ruffians. Instead of loathing their very existence, she befriends her tormentors and insists on accompanying them on the road less traveled.

Whether her risk is worth it or not, Imtiaz Ali's selection of locations -- Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir -- are a treat for the eyes, and the senses.

Kaza, Himachal Pradesh

Alia Bhatt, who plays the abductee, stands tall against majestic snow-clad mountains in one of the coldest places in India -- Kaza.

Kaza was among Alia's favourite destinations when she was shooting for the film.
