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.
