What Sandeep Reddy Vanga said about the character

The actor further added that Sandeep admitted the role was not that amazing for the audience to remember. “The character was really well-written when briefed to me and he (the character) had a good graph. Then I had a discussion with Sandeep sir, where I told him about my filmography and that I am a big fan of his work. I had watched Kabir Singh thrice and asked him whether I should do Animal or not. I was ready to do the movie just for the sake of my respect for Sandeep sir. But, he told me, ‘Role itna amazing nahi hai (the role is not that amazing) that people will remember. So it’s okay, we shall collaborate again in the future,” he said.
