Rishi Kapoor's personality impacted Ranbir's role
Ranbir said, "Whenever I met Sandeep, I always asked him to give me a reference. I have never heard or felt such violence or arrogance so I needed a reference so that I can keep that in mind and play my role. I think subconsciously I kept my father (Rishi Kapoor) in mind. The way he used to talk, he was a very passionate and aggressive man. So I tried to keep him in my mind and then play my role."
Sandeep Reddy Vanga co-wrote, edited, and directed the action thriller film 'Animal'. The film is produced by T-Series and Cine1 Studios. Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, and Tripti Dimri feature in the film and is set to release on December 1, 2023.
'Animal' is based on a problematic father-son relationship set against the backdrop of tremendous bloodshed in the underworld, which drives the son to turn into a savage psychopath.
