Kangana Ranaut, who was in Varanasi to launch the poster and announce the release date of her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, says she is a rebel and a badass. "I agree that I am rebellious but she (Rani Laxmi Bai) was a rebel with a cause and that makes her a hero...I rebel if my instincts want me to, so that makes me a badass. She's a hero," Kangana said.

Asked whether 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 Laxmibai in the film, directed by Krish, says it was high time a film was made on the historical figure. "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.

Talking about 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." The 30-year-old actor feels that she will be known better as a filmmaker than as an actor.
