Animal Teaser: The Animal teaser is finally out and it promises an intense experience in the cinemas. The teaser was released on the occasion of Ranbir Kapoor’s birthday. The actor headlines the film, marking his first collaboration with director Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The film also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol. Animal marks Ranbir’s second release of the year, after Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, and Sandeep’s second Bollywood film after Kabir Singh.
An intense Ranbir Kapoor leads the show, playing a man who is emotionally and physically abused by his father but doesn’t hold it against it. Instead, he defends him and even seeks for his validation. The teaser goes on to show that Ranbir’s character grows up to become a gangster and he is facing ‘Lord’ Bobby Deol (as mentioned on the film’s Wikipedia page).
Animal is set to release on December 1. The film was originally slated to release in August. It was set to clash with Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2, Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 and Rajinikanth’s Jailer. However, the director chose to delay the film to December because the post production of the film was incomplete.
“Why we are not able to release the film on August 11? The only reason is the quality. It might sound like a generic answer, generic reply but the fact is only quality… For example, there are seven songs in the film, when seven songs multiply into five languages it becomes 35 songs. 35 songs, different set of lyricists, different set of singers, it’s going to take a little more time than what I actually planned for," Sandeep Reddy Vanga said in a video announcing the delay.
“I have lately realised or else I wouldn’t have released the pre-teaser. Thank you so much for the pre-teaser response. A few of them said it will not be in the film but it will be there in the film, it is a cut out of the film episode," he added. The Animal pre-teaser was released in July, giving a glimpse at an intense Ranbir Kapoor beating up goons. He was seen covered in blood, hinting that fans will see him in a never-before-seen avatar.
