Animal faces legal dispute

Earlier, there was a dispute between co-producers of Animal, CINE 1 Studios Private Limited and T-Series. The matter was settled in Delhi High Court after Cine1 Studios filed a plea to put a hold on the film's release on the OTT platform till T-Series complied with the terms of the agreement in which the two houses had agreed to have 35 percent ownership each of the film and assigned its right of first refusal and last matching right.

The two production houses appeared through their respective senior advocates, Sandeep Sethi and Amit Sibal, who submitted that a settlement agreement was signed between their clients and brought the same on record. The submissions were noted down by the bench of Justice Sanjeev Narula.

Animal was released in theatres on December 1. It received mixed reviews from viewers and critics for ‘promoting violence and misogyny.’ However, the film became one of the highest grossers of 2023 and was a blockbuster at the box office in India and overseas. A sequel of the film, Animal Park, was officially confirmed previously.
