Randeep was questioned if it was true that he didn’t speak to his co-star Alia Bhatt on the set of Imtiaz Ali directorial 2014 film ‘Highway’. The actor said that it was true and that she wouldn’t even sit next to him since she was so afraid of him.

“I didn’t speak to Alia for 20-25 days when we shot for Highway. She was this girl from Juhu who had not seen much of the world; she didn’t have much exposure,” he said.

“So, to keep her fear of my character in place…she used to be terrified of me. I made sure of that. I never spoke to her. She wouldn’t come to sit next to me also. That’s the effect we wanted in the movie.
