Animal RAPE Scene: Actor Mansi Taxak Defends Marital Sexual Assault Scene Featuring Bobby Deol; Calls It 'An Apt Way To Establish Bobby Sir’s Character'
Sandeep Vanga Reddy's Animal has become the talk of the town and the film has gained widespread attention owing to its intense and controversial scenes. Now, actor Mansi Taxak, who plays one of the three wives of the character Abrar, played by Bobby Doel in the film Animal, made conflicting statements while discussing the scene involving marital rape. 

During a recent interview, Mansi shut down the suggestion of assault in the scene. Still, she acknowledged that the 'twisted' character Abrar displayed 'animal instincts' during that particular moment, leading him to release his frustrations on his wives.

Speaking to Zoom, Mansi was questioned about the wedding scene in the film, where Abrar learns about his brother's death. In a fit of rage, he first reacts by killing the messenger and then violently assaults Mansi's character, who is the youngest of his three wives. Following this he signals his other two wives to join them in the bedroom and allegedly violates them as well.


Without batting an eye, Mansi clarified “It is shocking, of course. Nobody expects their wedding to end that way. When the wedding sequence starts, if you see the lights and the way the art was done, it is beautiful. You hear the music, that has gone so viral on Instagram. It was heading towards a beautiful end, and suddenly, you see something like this happening. It was to tell the audience that an animal is coming; if you thought Ranbir was this way, you could expect the villain to be (worse). It was an apt way to establish Bobby Sir’s character and to show the audience what real animal we’re talking about. I would not wish that to happen at my wedding ever!”

She further added, “It was not the intent to show that any assault was happening. It was just that Bobby sir did not expect his brother’s death news to come on the wedding, which puts the character into a zone where he couldn’t think straight. And that’s what we’re talking about, right? Animal instincts are unpredictable instincts. So he goes into that zone, and to vent out his emotions, he comes to his wives. I don’t think it was intended to be any sort of assault. I didn’t feel it on the set, or in the script. That was not the case. It was just a relationship between two people that has panned out the way it did.” ALSO READ | DID YOU KNOW?
