During a virtual interaction, Ranbir revealed, “For Animal, I had shaved my hair! For the last scene, I had done that. So now I am growing my hair. Since I am not working on any film, I am eating a lot, and not following any diet. I have changed my entire lifestyle. I have quit smoking, so I am eating a lot of chocolates.”
Talking about Animal, Ranbir said, “This is the darkest film I have done because I am not playing any psycho killer in it. It is just the character, his mind, and the way he operates. His psyche is very dark. It is not somebody who I am or can relate to. It was very interesting for me to play him on screen because it was a very new, original character. I am glad I collaborated with Sandeep on this because I got a lot from him, about heroism, about characters, and about a grey part like this.”
According to a News18 report, Animal is set to get a grand opening in North America. Reportedly, the makers of the film have locked as many as 888 screens. In this terms, the thriller has surpassed Jawan and Brahmastra, which also starred Ranbir. Reports also claim that Animal`s runtime will exceed 3 hours and might have not just one but two intervals.
