About Animal Movie:

Animal is a Hindi action drama film directed and edited by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Pranay Reddy Vanga and Saurabh Gupta. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Pranay Reddy Vanga, Krishan Kumar and Murad Khetani under T-Series Films, Bhadrakali Pictures, and Cine1 Studios. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, and Triptii Dimri.

Animal was officially announced by T-Series on January 1, 2021, with an announcement video.

The film score is composed by Harshavardhan Rameshwar, who scored Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s previous films Arjun Reddy and its Hindi remake Kabir Singh.

Principal photography for the film began in Manali in April 2022 and ended in April 2023.

The pre-teaser of the film was released on June 11, 2023. The film’s teaser was released on September 28, 2023 and the trailer was released on November 23, 2023.

In March 2022 it was reported that Parineeti Chopra had quit the film and Rashmika Mandanna replaced her.

The gallery fight scene is highly inspired from the South Korean movie Oldboy (2003).

Animal received an A certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification, a day prior to its trailer release, for strong bloody violence, profanity, and some sexuality. It has been classified 18 by the British Board of Film Classification for the same reason.

It was initially set for an 11 August 2023 release but was postponed due to post-production and dubbing work.

Animal was theatrically released on 1 December 2023 in standard and IMAX formats/. The film received mixed reviews from critics. With a runtime of 201 minutes (3 hours 21 minutes), the film emerged as one of the longest Indian films made.

The film was released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada languages.

It broke several box office records for a Hindi film, including the highest non-holiday opening, biggest single days, highest opening weekend, and highest opening week in India. At the overseas box office, it broke several records and eventually emerged as the highest-grossing Indian film in Australia and Canada.

Animal grossed ₹917.76 crore (US$110 million) worldwide and emerged as a major commercial success becoming the third highest-grossing Indian film of 2023, the fifth-highest-grossing Hindi film, the ninth highest-grossing Indian film, and the highest-grossing A-rated Indian film of all time. It also became the highest-grossing film of Ranbir Kapoor’s career, surpassing Sanju (2018).

The digital streaming rights of Animal were acquired by Netflix. The film premiered on Netflix on 26 January 2024. While Vanga initially stated that it would have an additional 8 minutes of footage, it was later announced that Netflix would stream the theatrical cut with no additional scenes.

The film’s post-credits scene teases a sequel titled Animal Park, which was confirmed in December 2023 by director Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Shortly after the film’s release, Vanga said the sequel would be “darker” and “meaner” than its predecessor.
