We never knew there lurked a singer inside the up-and-coming actress Alia Bhatt until we saw her debut singing effort 'Sooha Saha' for Imtiaz Ali’s film Highway.
'Sooha Saaha' is a soulful lullaby composed by A R Rahman. It comes at a crucial juncture in the film when the character of a kidnapped girl played by Alia Bhatt overcomes her fears, begins to enjoy the journey, and croons a lullaby that reminds her abductor (Randeep Hooda) of his childhood.
To have Alia sing the song was Imtiaz Ali’s idea. Ali heard her croon a line or two and liked her voice. Then he convinced A R Rahman to record the song in Alia’s voice.
“It was unreal. I am a bathroom singer but to have the opportunity to sing a song composed by Rahman sir was unbelievable. This film is so close to my heart not just for acting but for singing too now!” Alia Bhatt says.
