If Vishal made Saif Ali Khan learn the UP dialect including the expletives in Omkara the director has made Vidya Balan take driving lessons for Ishqiya. "Vidya was a complete phobic when it came to driving. She has acute road phobia. She was petrified at the thought of driving. The very thought of driving a car would send shivers down her spine. But not anymore! And it is all thanks to Vishal Bharadwaj. Driving a car was something that is completely alien to her. But Vishal saw to it that she mastered the art and now is pretty comfortable manoeuvring her car on the road."
