Bollywood movies that will instantly make you hit the highway



Road trips are always better when you have a Bollywood playlist. Sounds like a Spotify ad? Haha, don’t worry we are not going to irritate you with that. Instead we will list a few Bollywood movies that will instantly make you hit the highway. But before diving into the listicle let’s get some knowledge on how the concept of roads and highways came into existence in India.



The concept of roads and highways in India can be dated back to Indus Civilization in Sindh, Balochistan between 3250-2750 BC. Several types of road construction were known in India by AD 75, according to archaeological and historical evidence. The brick pavement, stone slab pavement, a type of concrete used as a foundation course or a road surface, and the concepts of grouting (filling fissures) with gypsum, lime, or bituminous mortar were among them.
