Vidya Balan learns to drive for Ishqiya

Mumbai: After taking dialect training for UP Hindi from Naseeruddin Shah for Ishqiya, Vidya Balan is back to taking some more lessons.

This time she had to learn to drive a car! A source reveals, "Vidya was a complete phobic when it came to driving. She has acute road phobia. But not anymore! And it is all thanks to Vishal Bharadwaj. Vishal saw to it that she mastered the art and now is pretty comfortable maneuvering her car on the road."

Bharadwaj is very strict about his character portrayals in the films produced by him. The director-producer sees to it that the actor actually learns the skills in reality and not fake it on screen.
