Ranbir is seen in his bloodiest avatar yet – killing mercilessly with knife, axe, and machine gun. If the teaser only hinted at it, the trailer highlights what Ranbir's character has turned into as a result of a violent upbringing during his formative years. Dad Anil Kapoor is to blame.
The film is all set to be released in theatres on December 1. Animal was scheduled to be released on August 11, 2023, but was pushed due to pending post-production work.
Animal was officially announced by T-Series on January 1, 2021, with a video with actors Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, and Parineeti Chopra as cast and Sandeep Reddy Vanga as the director. A few days later, Tripti Dimri was also reported to star in the movie. In March 2022, it was reported that Rashmika Mandanna replaced Parineeti Chopra, as she chose Imtiaz Ali's Chamkila over Animal. Rashmika has been roped in to play Ranbir's wife Geetanjali.
Ranbir on his decision to accept Animal
In an interview with Variety, Ranbir was asked what made him accept Animal, and if he had watched director Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh, both of which have been criticised for glorifying misogyny.
Ranbir said, “Well, to be honest, I was really drawn to the script of Animal. It’s a unique and intense story that immediately caught my attention. As for watching Arjun Reddy or Kabir Singh, I must admit that I did watch both films and found them to be incredibly powerful and impactful. However, my decision to accept Animal was not solely based on those films. It was more about the script, the character, and the opportunity to work with Sandeep Reddy Vanga.”
