"Film is a director's medium. I would rather choose my directors over actors. It is not about the actor, it's always about the director, writer, script or the character I would like to play," said Sonam, who made her debut in 2007 with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Saawariyan".
"It's kind of demeaning to say that I would like to work with a particular actor. It's very demeaning to directors and writers to say that. They are the technicians, they are the ones who make the film actually," she added.
She was speaking on Wednesday on the sidelines of the on-going 15th Mumbai Festival.
