Animal: Despite becoming an overnight sensation, Bobby Deol says he’s unsure of his performance
Despite earning massive praise, Bobby Deol reveals being unsure of his performance in Animal. The actor shared thinking why everybody clapped for him.
In the recently released action-thriller Animal, Bobby Deol came out of the blue and stole the thunder. The actor played the prime antagonist Abrar Haque in the Sandeep Reddy Vanga starrer and his fierce looks despite having no dialogues left the audiences stunned.
Bobby Deol shares the BTS anecdote of Animal
While appearing at the Film Companion Actors’ Adda, Bobby revealed, “The scene where I put the finger on my mouth. I was just told what to do and speak in the sign language. I was like, ‘Okay, fine.’ I knew the dialogue because I had to practice it in sign language.”
He added, “So, when I just went and did that shot, I don’t want to boast but it was a one take shot and everybody started clapping and I was like, ‘Maine kya kia, why are people clapping?’ Sandeep comes to me and says, ‘Sir, that was an award winning shot.’ I was like, ‘I am working for so many years, no actor has told me this thing.’ I was happy inside but I was also thinking that maybe I am not able to do it and that’s why he is, ‘What a shot.’ So this is what I experienced. I lost the stardom but I never lost the love of the audience.”

The movie also starred Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna in pivotal roles. Talking about how he didn’t think he was the villain in Animal, Bobby shared in the same interview, "My family means everything to me, and you know my family. The Deols are emotional people. We can do anything for each other. These thoughts help an actor perform.”
On the box office front, Animal has earned Rs 517 crores domestically and has grossed Rs 843 crore globally.
