Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Animal’ Surges Towards ₹600 Crore Milestone
On its 19th day in theaters, “Animal” added ₹5 crore to its domestic box office earnings, bringing the total to ₹522.94 crore, according to an agency. The film’s commendable performance on its third Monday, a crucial litmus test, speaks volumes about its enduring appeal. Day 18 witnessed a similar feat, with “Animal” securing ₹5.5 crore in box office revenue.
Ranbir Kapoor, in the lead role as Ranvijay Singh Balbir, has not only captivated audiences with his compelling portrayal but has also shared the screen with a stellar ensemble cast, including Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, Triptii Dimri, Anil Kapoor, and Shakti Kapoor.
The performances of Ranbir Kapoor and Bobby Deol in particular have garnered praise from both fans and critics alike. Despite it being their first collaboration, the two actors have expressed mutual admiration. Bobby Deol, portraying the antagonist Abrar Haque in the film, showered accolades on Ranbir Kapoor, labeling him as “an amazing guy” and expressing his deep admiration.
In a conversation with a news reporter, Bobby Deol spoke highly of Ranbir Kapoor, emphasizing the superstar’s humility and lack of insecurities. Bobby Deol stated, “He’s a gem of a guy. What’s similar between us is that we’re both very family-oriented. We both come from film families and we know what it is to be a part of the industry.”
Bobby Deol further elaborated on the natural and magical chemistry they shared on-screen, describing Ranbir Kapoor as his favorite actor and expressing his mesmerization. The camaraderie between the two actors, rooted in mutual respect and a shared understanding of the industry, added an extra layer of authenticity to their performances.
However, it’s worth noting that not all reviews have been equally glowing. In a review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave “Animal” 1.5 stars, acknowledging Ranbir Kapoor’s powerful performance but critiquing the film’s overall execution and narrative choices.
As “Animal 2023” continues its successful run, it remains a compelling cinematic journey that has not only resonated with audiences but has also showcased the camaraderie and talent of its lead actors, particularly the dynamic duo of Ranbir Kapoor and Bobby Deol.
