Actress Kangana Ranaut, who recently launched the poster of her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi stated that historical movies are in trends these days giving the example of Baahubali.
The actress added that the response that Baahubali has received is a proof that people want to see historical movies. Kangana also admitted that she is 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.
Asked by IANS if making historicals have become a trend in Bollywood, Kangana told reporters: "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 come 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 filmmaking."
Kangana feels that she will be known better as a filmmaker than an actor.
