Tripti Dimri on ‘lick my shoe’ scene in Animal.

Animal actress Triptii Dimri opened up about the ‘lick my shoe’ scene in the movie. She said she would not do it in real life.

Triptii Dimri has been making the headlines since the release of Animal. Besides impressing everyone with her performance, her intimate scenes with Ranbir Kapoor have also been the talk of the town. However, another scene has also drawn flak from a section of social media. In the second half of the film, Ranbir’s character Vijay (Ranbir) asks Zoya to lick his shoe to prove her love for him. She bows down to almost do it but Vijay walks away. Speaking in a new interview, Triptii said though her character in Animal seems to be ready to do it, she would not do it in real life.

Speaking with Pinkvilla, Triptii said, “I as tripti won’t go and lick someone’s shoe if someone asks me I would be very offended but for Zoya maybe she felt like doing it because zoya is not tripti and she has her own reasons to do it.”

“Sometimes, there is good, bad, ugly in all of us, we have a dark side and sometimes we react out of that and that only happens when something major has happened in life and its the experiences that we have growing up that shapes us as a person. Sometimes you go too dark, sometimes you’re not right? You’re only playing in the middle somewhere and that similar way you have to hunmanize your character a well,” she added.

This is not the first time that Tripti has spoken about the scene. In an interaction with The Indian Express, Tripti said, “It reminded me of what my acting coach had told me, the golden rule: Never judge your character. The characters you are playing, the character your co-actor is playing, all are human and humans have good and bad side. An actor must be prepared to play characters across the spectrum of good, bad and ugly, but if you judge a character’s motivations, thoughts, you won’t be able to play it with honesty. So that’s what I kept in mind.”
