Anil Kapoor's first look
The first look of Anil from Animal shows him sitting on a wooden sofa chair and staring into the camera. He's wearing a blue track suit open from the front. Interestingly, he looks not only intense, but also literally sick. His eyes are swollen and blackened. He's also wearing an IV drip, suggesting that he's unwell. A lot of colourful flowers adorn the background in what looks like a wallpaper.
Anil took to social media on Thursday to share the poster. He introduced his character from the film in the caption, “Animal Ka Baap…Balbir singh!”
Reactions to Anil's look
Anil's son and actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor commented four bow-down emojis and two fire emojis on his Instagram post. Anil's son-in-law and Thank You For Coming director Karan Boolani also commented a face with sunglasses emoji on the Instagram post.
Anil's Thank You For Coming co-star Bhumi Pednekar and her sister Samiksha Pednekar also left some bow-down emojis in the Instagram comment section.
