Bobby Deol's resurgence owes much to his striking physical transformation.

Following the director's vision, Prajwal curated a tailored workout regimen, with Bobby exhibiting unwavering commitment. Prajwal credits Bobby for his unyielding dedication, never shying away from the rigorous routines. The actor wholeheartedly embraced Prajwal's guidance, dedicating over 100 per cent effort to both training and diet.
In an interview with an online news platform, Bobby Deol's trainer, Prajwal, disclosed that the actor successfully trimmed his body fat percentage down to 12—a testament to the rigorous physical regimen he diligently followed. Bobby's weight oscillated between 85 and 90 kilograms, largely attributed to his commitment to a twice-daily 40-minute high-intensity cardio routine, conducted both in the mornings and evenings. The Soldier star didn't even eat sweets for four months and had to watch out for his calorie intake.
Animal stars Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna in major roles. The film clashes with Vicky Kaushal's Sam Bahadur.
