3. Rashmika Mandanna used to check with Ranbir Kapoor if she did well on the Animal set

Rashmika Mandanna recently shared that she used to ask Ranbir Kapoor whether she performed well on the sets of Animal. In a conversation with The Indian Express in October this year, Rashmika said, “When you work with them, you realize how they’re so in sync. Because I believe that Ranbir is a director’s actor and so am I. Our captain is Sandeep sir and he’s perfect. But at the same time, Sandeep sir is so open with his actors that he tells us, ‘You figure it out.’ He asks us, ‘Do you have some instance that I can put in this montage or in the scene, or if there’s any eye shift or look or anything?’ He comes and asks us after the scene if we’re ok if we found the scene ok. Then I go to RK and ask him if he feels I did well.”

9. Is Animal a proper commercial entertainer?

Film producers Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani opened about the film Animal. Speaking to Pinkvilla in May, Bhushan said, “Sandeep Reddy Vanga directed Animal is the perfect pitch for big screen entertainment. It’s a very interesting script and has got all the elements for a big screen watch – heroism, music, entry, interval block, father emotion, mother emotion, scale, and action. Sandeep Reddy Vanga understands the sensibility of Hindi-speaking audiences since he comes from the South. Their sensibility is in sync with the kind of films we made in the 1970s and 80s. The South industry is just repackaging those films and making them on a big scale, something that we are not doing here.”

I just want to do it correctly with diet, with the correct amount of workout, the correct amount of rest, the correct amount of recovery.”
