Manoj Bajpayee recently had a jittery experience at the wheel, while shooting an action sequence for his upcoming film ‘Traffic’. The actor had once witnessed a gruesome car accident as a child and has not been able to get over it yet. In fact, he is so scared of car accidents after what had happened earlier that he has strictly instructed his driver to adhere to the speed limit of 70 kmph.
Manoj also has learnt driving only recently. So, it was with great difficulty that he mustered the courage to be in the driver’s seat. The scene required him to drive at breakneck speed. And then, what he feared had happened. As heard from a source, “Manoj had a narrow escape. The scene required him to take a sharp turn at high speed. He would have flipped across, had he not pressed the brakes at the last minute, bringing the car to a screeching halt. His presence of mind saved the day.”
