Mumbai: Contrary to the reports that Sonam Kapoor had problems with actor-director Pankaj Kapoor while shooting for his directorial debut `Masuam`, the youngster says she admires the veteran`s acting skills.
"The first time I met Pankaj-ji, it was for a workshop and we were reading the scenes out. I got along with him soon. I just loved his sensibility. I have always admired him as an actor," Sonam told reporters.
The veteran actor is often considered to be a serious person, but Sonam says she wasn`t nervous.
"You need to have a sense of confidence and I learnt that from Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. He said nobody will hire you if they will feel you can`t do their job. So, I go there thinking I have to go there and do my job. You go there, you learn from people and experience things," she added.
The film also stars Shahid Kapoor in the lead. It releases Friday.
