Actress Kangana Ranaut has established herself as one of the leading actresses of Bollywood. But the actress thinks that nothing in her life comes easy and that she would always have to struggle to achieve her goals.

"My journey has been quite different. While flying to Mumbai for the conference, I was thinking about all sorts of questions that would be asked to me here. So I thought, 'Has my journey really been unusual or is it only me who thinks that way?' But the one aspect that is striking about my journey is that I have to fight for everything in life, even the smallest of the things. I don't know why it happens. Maybe it is my destiny, but I have made peace with it," said the actress while promoting her upcoming movie ‘Simran’.

The actress has been labeled many things in her career and the actress said she has made peace with it.

"A lot of you might think, 'to be or not to be' but it is okay or like you guys use the word rebel, ladaku... I don't take offence to that... I will take what is mine, be it by fighting or any other means," she said.

The actress was joined by her ‘Simran’ director Hansal Mehta. The director revealed that much before they collaborated for 'Simran', he had approached her with a film post her debut in 'Gangster'.

"I was pursuing her for a film since years. In fact, I had called her to my office for a script narration, just after 'Gangster'. I was confident she will say yes. But she refused," Mehta said.

To which, Kangana quipped, "I don't remember this incident at all. He said his ego was hurt a lot. But this is the story of my life, whether I remember or not, I definitely hurt ego."

'Simran' is scheduled to release on September 15.
