While the anticipation for the sequel of Animal grows among fans, Ranbir Kapoor shared a few insights during a conversation with actor and comedian Anubhav Singh Bassi for Netflix India. Kapoor revealed that during the production of Animal, not everyone was fully informed about the storyline.
He said, “Bobby (Deol) sir had no idea about the story. Anil (Kapoor) sir knew the father-son story. But there were many aspects where Sandeep was very secretive about his script. Regarding Animal Park, he (Vanga) has one or two scenes ready, which he narrated to me, and they are very exciting.”
Animal further noted that after the success of the first instalment, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga is prepared to dive even deeper into darkness and complexity in the sequel. “Now, because of the success of part one, he has the confidence and courage to go even darker, deeper and more complex. He can do anything,” Kapoor added.
Ranbir Kapoor addresses the controversy around Animal
Addressing the film's negative reviews, Kapoor highlighted the positive aspect of initiating a 'healthy' conversation about toxic masculinity in society. He said, “There is a very healthy conversation that has started about toxic masculinity also, which is a great thing because cinema, at least, it starts a conversation.”
Ranbir Kapoor addressed the dual role of actors and audiences in recognizing and addressing societal issues. “So the roles we are playing, those are characters. It is very important that as actors, we have empathy for them because we need to play it. But as an audience, you should decide what’s wrong. You can make a film on the wrong person and it should be made. Because if you don’t make a film on them, society will never improve,” Kapoor added.
