The actress will next be seen in Krrish 2 and Shootout at Wadala.
Ranaut told The Times of India: "I believe that competition should be healthy, and I'd like to be number one, but sometimes it's confusing. What's the criteria of being number one in the industry?
"Sometimes it's being really loved and wanted by the audience and getting the best films in terms of meaty roles and films which will have a wide audience. Is that what being a number one actress is all about?
"Then I'd love to be that. But sometimes, a few people who are not worth it claim to be number one in the industry, and you definitely don't want to be in their place."
Ranaut has previously said that Bollywood actresses do not know how to dress themselves properly, with the exception of Sonam Kapoor.
In November, the Fashion star claimed that 2012 would be her break-out year in the industry.
