Kangana, 28, was speaking at the launch of the cover of Femina magazine which features her with Rangoli.
Talking about her sister's struggle, Kangana said, "Rangoli is a real hero and she should get her due, but we are not the kind of people who go out there and seek acknowledgement for our struggle. Rangoli's story is extremely sensitive.
"I want the society to applaud and acknowledge people who are real heroes. Rangoli is one such real hero, and I am very proud to be her sister. She has been my inspiration," she added.
The actress also revealed how she wanted to make a film on Rangoli and play her on-screen.
"We were shooting in Arunachal Pradesh and when this cover of Femina came out, I told Rangoli that I want to make a story on you and I want the rights of your life. I want to play you. Rangoli said, 'Yes, it will be a very big flop film'," Kangana quipped.
Kangana also says that her life is not 'as exciting' as Rangoli's.
"Rangoli's life is far more interesting than my life, thanks to her husband who has been madly in love with her since day one. I don't have a lover like that, so I think my life is not as exciting as Rangoli's."
