Sonam Kapoor, currently basking in the fabulous reviews and box office success of "Raanjhanaa", is immensely pleased with the outcome of Anand L. Rai's directorial venture that also starred southern star Dhanush.

"The thing is, I never got to do a role and film like 'Raanjhanaa'. This is the first role since Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's 'Delhi 6' where I got a chance to create a character from the working-class," said Sonam.

"Not that I don't love every character I play. I've come away from every film with something. But I can only be as good as the material offered and my co-stars. My director and co-star in 'Raanjhanaa' are brilliant," added the actress.

She may not have entered Bollywood with a bang as her debut film "Saawariya" bombed at the box office, but critics appreciated her work in the film and later they lauded her for her performance in "Delhi 6".

In six years, Sonam has been part of about a dozen films and admits she has been learning acting on the job.

"I am not a trained actor. I learned the basics of acting while doing 'Saawariya' with Sanjay Bhansali. So, he was my acting guru," she said.

"I don't follow any technique. I just flow with my character. That's what I did in 'Raanjhanaa'. I surrendered to my director. It was both exhilarating and terrifying. Because I really didn't know where I was heading," she said.

Her next release will be "Bhag Milkha Bhag", a biopic on legendary athlete Milkha Singh.

She may have had a few roles - but she can look back and be happy with the quality of roles she did.
