After winning hearts as Baba Nirala in Aashram, Bobby Deol is all set to return to the big screen with Animal. Starring Ranbir Kapoor as the lead, the gore-action film has been directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and will hit the theatres on December 1. Last week, the makers dropped the teaser of the highly-anticipated film, and cinema buffs went bananas.
Apart from Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, what became the talk of the town is Bobby Deol's look in Animal. In the teaser, Deol appears towards the end bare-chested and hinted at a negative role. Now, veteran actor Dharmendra, who recently grabbed eyeballs for his on-screen kissing with Shabana Azmi in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, reacted to one of the edited videos of his son Bobby Deol's look.
Sharing the video, Dharmendra wrote, "My innocent son in Animal…….."
