Vidya Balan is busy preparing for her upcoming film Begum Jaan, the Hindi remake of the National award winning Bengali film Rajkahini. From taking diction lessons to voice modulations, the actress is undergoing several training sessions.
Amongst them, Vidya Balan will also start taking horse-riding lessons for the film. She will be training with a special coach for an hour, prior to her hair and make-up everyday so that she begins to feel comfortable riding a horse.
