What Ranbir said
In a new post by the Reddit Page BollyBlindsNGossip, Ranbir said, “Alia and me speak so much about each other’s work. I really respect her as an artiste and I really respect her mind and how she thinks. Every scene or everyday when I going to shoot the film, I would discuss it with her and she has helped me with so many scenes. She has helped me with scenes where I was scared as an actor that ‘Is it sounding too wrong?'”
Ranbir further added how he has not done a film as intense as Animal before. He praised Alia for supporting him through the shooting schedule and said, “I have never pushed the boundaries so much as a character. I have always tried to portray goodness on the screen. She played that barometer, saying, ‘Listen it is fine. It’s a character and it is making sense. There is an idea and thought behind it.’ She has been a strong support when this film is concerned.”
Ranbir will be seen in an alpha-male, intense, action avatar in Animal, which also stars Anil Kapoor as his father, Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, and Tripti Dimri among others. In the trailer, Ranbir's character is seen as protective and obsessive about his father's love. He is seen threatening anybody who comes in the way of his love for his father. Animal is all set to hit the theatres on December 1 and will be released in 5 languages- Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
