Kangana feels she’s found her passion in filmmaking


Kangana feels that she will be known better as a film-maker than a actor.

Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut, who was present to launch the poster and announce the release date of her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, agrees that she’s a rebellious.

“I agree that I am rebellious but she (Rani Laxmi Bai) was a rebel with a cause that makes her a hero…I rebel because if my instincts want me too. So that makes me a badass. She’s a hero,” Kangana said.

She also said that historical movies are the latest trend in Bollywood. “Well it’s working. Look at Baahubali, it has broken all the records and that’s what people want to see but to be honest Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is not like a project …”

Kangana, who will be seen playing Rani Laxmi Bai in the film, directed by Krish, says a film should be made on her.

“She is from our country. If she was from some other country how would they celebrate her spirit. So we as a nation need to give her, her due,” she said.

Asked if this film will be the climax of her acting career, she said: “There are projects and then there are films that are sort of fulfil something within you. When I was 15 and left home, I didn’t know when I will feel that I have arrived or achieved something and that feeling didn’t came post when I started working on Jhansi Ki Rani...just felt like everything made sense you know.”

Kangana said that her life has come to a full circle.

“Before this no amount of failure or success could make me feel like an achiever and now I feel I just don’t want to waste,” she said.

Talking about having a biopic on her life, Kangana said: “I personally feel I have a long way to go…I still feel I haven’t got into the field that I actually feel very passionate about, which is film-making.”
