About the film
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.
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.
