Ranbir Kapoor on why he didn’t dub in the Telugu language for Animal

The cast and crew of Animal have descended upon Hyderabad for a spectacular pre-release event. Before the event kicked off, the team engaged in a press interaction, fielding numerous questions about their much-anticipated film. When queried about not dubbing in Telugu himself, Ranbir Kapoor replied, “We tried. But Sandeep (director) said very clearly that when I am speaking Telugu dialogues, there is a north Indian accent to it and we didn’t want the Telugu-speaking audience to get distracted by that.”

Ranbir further explained, “But it is definitely something I will be more conscious about, maybe next time I do a film which will appeal to a larger fanbase.”

Despite not lending his own voice in Telugu, Ranbir expressed his gratitude, stating, “I am just happy that even though I haven’t dubbed, but the kind of love and warmth that we are receiving from the Telugu-speaking audience, it’s really heartwarming and we are very grateful for that.”
