The actor, who is awaiting the release of her forthcoming film Raanjhanaa, says she doesn’t mind giving umpteen retakes until her director is satisfied.

“I am a director’s actor. If my acting is appreciated, it’s because of the director, and if it’s not appreciated, it’s all again because of the director. I will keep giving them takes till they are convinced,” she adds.

Directed by Aanand L Rai, Raanjhaana features south star Dhanush opposite Sonam.
