On Christmas 2019, Ranbir Kapoor announced his next titled Animal, which will be helmed by Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga. After enjoying a brief break with girlfriend Alia Bhatt and their families at Ranthambore, Ranbir kick-started the shooting of Luv Ranjan’s next in Delhi. His untitled next also stars Shraddha Kapoor opposite him. For all those, who have been waiting to know about the latest update about Animal, this one’s for you.
As per latest reports, the makers of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Animal have reportedly roped in Anil Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra for key characters. According to a report in Pinkvilla, Parineeti Chopra is expected to play Ranbir Kapoor’s wife in Animal while Anil Kapoor will portray the role of his father. The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial also features Bobby Deol in the lead role. On Christmas eve, the makers had dropped the announcement video that had Ranbir Kapoor’s monologue.
A source close to the development revealed to Pinkvilla, “It’s a gangster drama, but in a space not done before. The premise of the film entangles the turbulent relationships between all the characters that eventually lead to the protagonist becoming an ‘animal’ in nature.” Spilling the beans on their characters, the source further added, “Parineeti plays Ranbir’s wife, whereas Anil Kapoor plays his father, who is an emperor of sorts in his line of business.”
Without divulging much details the source concluded saying, “It’s a rooted gangster drama, with emotions, vengeance and darkness, yet very larger than life in terms of treatment. The idea is to take it on floors around June, but it all depends on the other work commitments of Ranbir, as also his release calendar.”
