Actors Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna’s upcoming film Animal, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, is all set to release this week. The trailer was unveiled on Thursday, November 23 in New Delhi. On Friday, the makers launched the music album of the film in the presence of fans. Recently, the film’s certification revealed that the runtime is 3 hours and 21 minutes. At a recent press conference in Bengaluru, Ranbir Kapoor was asked about the long runtime of the film.

Ranbir Kapoor was accompanied by his co-stars Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and producer Bhushan Kumar. The actor said, “Cinema is cinema. We are not releasing a film this long because we are arrogant about it. We felt that this story required this amount of time to reach the audience in the best way possible.”

Adding further, Ranbir said, “We have seen a cut of this film which is 3 hrs 49 mins and that also held. Even that was entertaining. Sandeep has worked really hard to bring the length down because you cannot stretch that much. Hoping that the audience do not panic by the length and just come experience cinema at its best.”

Rashmika Mandanna said, “This film has multiple complex characters. If you take one character out of it can be a movie in itself. So if you have to enter the world of Animaland understand what psyche they are coming you need so much time and that is the instinct we have gone by. The film is so strong, it holds so well, it is not something you have to worry about.”

Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series, Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios and Pranay Reddy Vanga’s Bhadrakali Pictures have backed Animal. The film is releasing on 1st December 2023.
