Bobby Deol recently opened up about a poignant scene in his latest film, "Animal," where he had to tap into personal emotions to deliver a powerful performance. In an interview with iDream Media, the actor discussed his approach to a crucial moment in the movie, shedding light on the emotional intensity involved.

Describing the scene where his character learns about his brother's death, Bobby shared a unique technique he employed. Drawing from his personal experiences, he envisioned losing his real brother, Sunny Deol, to convey the emotions required for the scene authentically. Remarkably, he nailed the shot in a single take, impressing director Sandeep Reddy Vanga.

Bobby Deol said, "In that scene, it was about a brother who has lost his brother. As actors, we use incidents in our lives to bring that emotion. We have a bank full of them. My brother means the world to me. When I was performing that scene, it was as if I’ve actually lost my brother. And that’s why, when I was emoting, it felt real."

The authenticity of the moment resonated deeply, requiring only one take to capture the desired emotions. Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the director, acknowledged the power of Bobby's performance, declaring it an "award-winning shot."

"Animal" is a gripping crime thriller featuring a stellar cast, including Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, Triptii Dimri, and Anil Kapoor. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film unravels a complex narrative filled with violence and conflicts, primarily centered around a challenging father-son relationship.
