From Geet's dance where snow-clad mountains appear on both sides to Geet's separation from Aditya, the scenes display the bounty of love and natural landscapes of Rohtang!

The lives of Veera and Mahabir, the lead characters of Highway take a beautiful turn as their bus takes a turn to Spiti in Himachal Pradesh! This beautiful transition comes as an added perfection in the movie shot by Imtiaz Ali. Another instance where the stiffness of Mahabir turns into cordial behaviour with a smile in the movie is beautifully showcased here in Spiti symbolising the transitions from coldness. Next time you watch the movie, make sure you notice these elements too!
