Manoj narrowly escapes a grave accident
Manoj Bajpayee recently had a jittery experience at the wheel, while shooting for an action sequence in his upcoming film Traffic.
The actor had apparently witnessed a gruesome car accident as a child and has not been able to forget it. In fact, so scared is he of car accidents that he has strictly instructed his driver to adhere to the speed limit of 70 kmph. Also, Manoj learnt driving only recently. So, it was with greatdifficulty 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 happened. Says 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.”
