Animal has released across the country on Friday, December 1. The trailer had already promised that it would be a massy film about a father and son. However, the song, Hua Main, had also teased that fans would get to see an intense love story revolving around Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna. While the song, Hua Main, had already given a tease at their chemistry, a few photos from the film have revealed that there a lot more intimate moments in the movie.
In one of the photos, Rashmika and Ranbir appeared to be sharing an intense moment in their room. The photos have gone viral on X, previously known as Twitter, and have caused a stir online.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Central Board of Film Certification gave the film an Adults Only (A) certificate and asked director Sandeep Reddy Vanga to make five changes. One of the changes they have asked the team do is reduce the length intimate scenes. In the certificate leaked online, one of the pointers reads, “Modified the intimate visuals of Vijay and Zoya by deleting the close-up shots at TCR 02:28:37.”
In an interview with The Hindu, the director said he was happy that Animal has got an A certificate and as the film is made only for adults. He added that he will not be taking his own son to watch the film.
Animal is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and revolves around a father and son’s toxic relationship. While Anil plays the emotionally unavailable father, Ranbir plays the role of the traumatised, angry son. The trailer was released in Delhi with Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna by his side. Speaking at the press conference, Ranbir compared Animal with Karan Johar’s Khushi Kabhie Kabhi Gham. “This is an adult rated Khushi Kabhie Kabhi Gham,” Ranbir said. Animal marks Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s second directorial venture in Bollywood, after Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh.
