At the end of the movie, filmmaker Sandeep gave a peek at the sequel of the film, making cinephiles excited. When asked if he would be part of Animal Park, the Socha Na Tha actor said that since the director wanted him in the next film, he removed his death sequence from Animal.


Sharing more about it, the veteran actor stated, “My character was supposed to die in it, but he removed that part and said he wanted me to be in Animal Park too. When I inquired about the death scene, he told me it was cut because he wanted me in part two.”

Suresh Oberoi also added that while shooting for Kabir Singh with Sandeep, the helmer had expressed how comfortable he was shooting with him. “Vanga used to tell me during Kabir Singh that he loves working with me. He would say, ‘I am very comfortable because you do all we say and don’t trouble us.’ Later on, he gave me a role in Animal,” he revealed.

Animal went on to break all box office records and became a mega blockbuster last year.
