When Shabana gets nervous, directors rescue her

Mumbai, April 21 (IANS) Actress and social activist Shabana Azmi confesses that she gets jittery before any shoot, but her directors have always bailed her out.

The 61-year-old, who recently gave a stage performance for the play "Broken Images", faced the same problem before the curtain went up.

"Just before last nights show of 'Broken Images', I was a nervous wreck. Felt I wont remember a line. Reassuring to receive standing ovation," Shabana, who was last seen in movie "Matru Ki Bijilee Ka Mandola", posted on Twitter.

"There have been moments before a shot I've frozen - it's always the director who has come to my rescue especially S. Benegal, Aparna Sen and Deepa Mehta," she added.
