Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy Vanga's first collaboration, Animal is all set to hit the silver screen on December 1. Co-starring Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and Bobby Deol, the action-crime is the highly-anticipated film of Kapoor after Shershaah failed to perform at the box office.
Animal is clashing with Meghna Gulzar's Sam Bahadur starring Vicky Kaushal. However, the film is said to become Kapoor's biggest opener, based on its advance booking trends.

Take a look at the tweet here:
Ranbir Kapoor is expected to witness the biggest opening of his career with Animal. In 2022, his film, Brahmastra, opened at Rs 37 crores on Day 1 at the box office.
Helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who earlier gave Kabir Singh to Bollywood, the film follows the father and son bond and how it turns ugly. Ranbir Kapoor is seen crossing limits to make his father like him and turns into a criminal during the process. On the other hand, Rashmika Mandanna plays Kapoor's love interest while Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol are his father and foe respectively.
Made on a budget of Rs 100 crore, Animal is clashing with Vicky Kaushal's Sam Bahadur at the box office. While Animal began its advance booking on Saturday, Sam Bahadur announced it on Sunday.
