Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal still makes headlines even after months of release. The film starring Ranbir Kapoor was tagged as 'misogynistic' by some netizens while others praised it. 

Celebrities who watched the film also shared their opinions regarding the film. Now, in a recent interview, Ratna Pathak Shah revealed that she did not watch Animal and also RRR.

'I didn’t feel the need to watch Animal,' says Ratna Pathak Shah

During an interview with The Lallantop, Ratna Pathak Shah revealed that she has not seen RRR and Animal. The veteran actress tried watching RRR but didn’t watch the entire film.

"I can accept that many people have liked and appreciated RRR, but it is not to my taste. However, I didn’t feel the need to watch Animal; I saw its poster and its mood, and I got scared, felt distanced. Then I heard such things about it… so I didn’t watch it. I can imagine the sort of film it is,” she added.

She also commented on the portrayal of s*x and violence in South Indian films. The Dhak Dhak actress shared that these are portrayed in a strange way in South Indian films. In their songs, s*xuality is of a different level, and it is an interesting contradiction, according to her.
