Ranbir was hit multiple times for this scene by Rashmika in Animal: Pranay Reddy | Bollywood


Ever since Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal released on December 1, the film has been dissected by critics, fans, in interviews and more. So much so, that the conversation still hasn’t died down, even 26 days after the film’s release. Sandeep’s brother Pranay, who’s also the producer, talked about the film in an interview with iDream Media. He addressed some of the criticism they’ve faced since the film’s release.

‘There’s no ill intent’

Ranbir Kapoor plays Ranvijay Singh in the film and the antagonist, Bobby Deol, plays a character called Abrar. “When Sandeep told me the villain will have three wives and eight kids, I knew it’s something people would talk about. I was right,” says Pranay in the interview. However, he claims that there was no ill intent behind making the villain belong to a particular community. “Some complained that we didn’t show the community in a good light. In the last three decades, we have seen numerous villains wearing a bottu (bindi/tilak). Nobody complained. Just because it’s a minority now, people are nitpicking,” he adds.

‘Sandeep is not calculative’

The interviewer asks if Sandeep is calculative when he shows violence or gives his female actors less screen space. Pranay disagrees with her and says, “I think Rashmika’s character Geetanjali is as important as RK (Ranbir Kapoor) and Bobby’s. RK hardly has four lines in a four-page-long Karva Chauth scene. RK also told Rashmika that this is her scene. He even told her she can hit him multiple times to get her scene right.” In fact, the producer reveals that Ranbir was hit at least 20-25 times before they got the shot right. “RK is not insecure. He wanted the scene to work well emotionally,” he adds.
