‘Would love to work with SRK’
Sandeep revealed that he’s a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan. He said in the interview, “We, as a team, watched Pathaan while shooting for Animal. I have also seen Jawaan. I will lap it up if I get a chance to work with him in the future.”

When his dad, played by Anil, is attacked, he goes down a spiral and seeks revenge from those who attacked him. Rashmika plays Geethanjali, the girl he seduces and Bobby Deol plays the main antagonist.
Box office business
