What Triptii Dimri said on working with Rashmika Mandanna
Triptii said: "She is the sweetest, sweetest person on set. She made me feel welcomed and there was no awkwardness. Usually, when there are two heroines in the film, there is always that energy... There was nothing, she was just so brilliant. She came to me and she gave me a hug and she was like come sit with us. She could also see that I was awkward a little (laughs), but she just made me feel welcomed. I think that is such a beautiful quality to have."
Triptii further revealed one quality about Ranbir Kapoor from her experience working with him. She shared that he is someone who is curious and wants to know the person with whom he is working.
A few days before Animal's release on December 1, the Central Board of Film Certification had suggested eight cuts to Sandeep Reddy Vanga's film. According to the certificate that Hindustan Times reported, close-up shots of the characters Vijay and Zoya were deleted in an intimate sequence.
Animal revolves around a father and son’s toxic relationship. While Anil Kapoor plays the emotionally unavailable father, Ranbir plays the role of the traumatised, angry son. The film has been performing very well at the box office. It recently crossed the ₹600 crore gross mark worldwide.
