    Sonam Kapoor made his Bollywood debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya. The actress did not work with the director post her debut film.

    In a recent interview to Huffington Post, Sonam Kapoor made a very surprising statement on working again with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She said, "I don't think I am his kind of actor. That's what it is. I am eternally grateful to him for giving me my debut but I just don't think I am his kind of an actor. If he thought I suited something, I am sure he'll cast me again."

    The actress also told, ''In this day and age if you aren't responsible for what you are a part of, shame on you. Especially when you are in an influential position. If we lived in a Utopian society, one could argue that you can do art for art's sake. But we don't. You are influencing so many people, you have to take ownership of it. I don't believe in censoring anyone but as far as I am concerned, I cannot be a part of something that is racist, sexist, homophobic, or just regressive."

    "I've worked with the best. For Mehra sir, I am willing to bend backward. With some people, you just share a great relationship. It's easy. I know what they want, and they know what I can deliver.''

    Talking about her career, she said, "I took a year off and asked myself -- what is my ambition? Is it to become the biggest superstar in the country or is it to become a better actor? Chasing stardom would've made me lose my way. But chasing the idea of becoming a better actor would be beneficial. Stardom would follow. So I think altering my approach helped me find my space as I started identifying what I am comfortable in. I still don't regret any films I have done. They've been great learning lessons."

    She added, "You need to feel from within that this film is enriching you as a person, it's making you more than what you were before. I decided I'll only sign films that tap into that feeling. And it's been a great ride."
