Triptii on shooting intimate scenes for Animal
Recently, in an interview with India Today, the actor got candid about shooting her much-talked-about intimate scene with Ranbir. Triptii Dimri said, “While signing the project, Sandeep told me that there’s a scene and I want to shoot it this way, but I will make it look aesthetically amazing. I want to create a Beauty and the Beast kind of image. And this is what I have. I leave it up to you, whether you're comfortable or not comfortable, you let me know, we'll work around it is what he told me... So, when I saw the references, I was like ‘wow, it’s an important moment between the two characters. That made me comfortable."
Triptii Dimri on Animal's ‘lick my shoe’ scene
In another interview with The Indian Express, Triptii addressed the controversy around Ranbir Kapoor's 'lick my shoe' line in Animal. In the particular scene from Animal, Ranbir’s character Rannvijay Singh aka Vijay asks Triptii's Zoya to lick his shoe to prove that she truly loves him, after she is revealed as a mole.
Speaking about it, Triptii said, “It reminded me of what my acting coach had told me, the golden rule: Never judge your character. The characters you are playing, the character your co-actor is playing, all are human and humans have good and bad side."
