The much-anticipated film, 'Animal,' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna, has been making waves ahead of its December 1 release. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the movie features a star-studded cast, including Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol, promising an intense and gripping cinematic experience. During the recent trailer launch, Ranbir Kapoor took a poignant trip down memory lane, remembering his late father, Rishi Kapoor, while discussing his preparation for the role.
At the grand trailer launch on November 22, Ranbir Kapoor opened up about the unique process of preparing for his character in 'Animal.' Expressing his dedication to the craft, he revealed, "I think eventually sub-consciously mujhe mere papa ki yaad aa gayi…I think jis tareeke se vo baat karte the, he was a very passionate aggressive man ke jaise (I think eventually it reminded me of my father, the way he used to speak like a very passionate and an aggressive man)."
The 3-minute 32-second trailer, unveiled at the event, provides a glimpse into the film's plot, revolving around an intense father-son relationship. Rashmika Mandanna, in the role of Geetanjali, serves as Ranbir's love interest, while Anil Kapoor portrays the character of Balbir Singh, Ranbir's father. Bobby Deol, in a never-before-seen avatar, takes on the role of an antagonist, with his menacing presence and blood-smeared face capturing attention on the internet.
The film's songs, including "Arjan Vailly," released a couple of days ago, have already garnered immense love from the audience. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Pranay Reddy Vanga, Murad Khetani, and Krishan Kumar, 'Animal' is set to face a theatrical clash with Vicky Kaushal's 'Sam Bahadur,' directed by Meghna Gulzar.
