Rashmika said that her 'Animal' character is the best she has done so far and gave all the credit to Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film's director. She said, "I really have to give it to Sandeep because don't think I have seen myself doing a character like this and Sandeep got it out of me. Ranbir is such an intense performer so if one has to share the screen with him, means you have to be good enough."

Rashmika said that Ranbir Kapoor makes it very easy for his co-stars to work with him. "The first question he asked me was 'Do you want to rehearse before the scene? Or do you want to roll in directly?' I have worked in so many films and till now no one has asked me this question," she stated. She mentioned that with Ranbir's gesture, she released that when you rehearse with your co-actor the performance comes so naturally and so beautifully that the chemistry builds and conversation gets better.
'Animal' is co-written, edited, and directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and is produced by T-Series and Cine1 Studios. The film's cast includes Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, and Tripti Dimri feature.

Arjun Singh's ardent love and devotion for his father and family, ironically, causes friction among them.
