Prem Chopra made a guest appearance in the film.
“Ranbir is a very hardworking actor and performed so well in Rocket Singh. In Animal, he is tremendous,” said Prem Chopra.
Ranbir Kapoor starrer Animal has been making waves ever since its release. While the film is setting records at the box office, it has also faced criticism for its content. Veteran actor Prem Chopra recently provided his perspective on the Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s directorial in an interview. During the conversation, Prem Chopra commended the performances of both Ranbir Kapoor and Bobby Deol in the film.
Speaking to PTI, Prem Chopra praised Ranbir Kapoor’s performance in the film saying, “Ranbir is a very hardworking actor and performed so well in Rocket Singh. In Animal, he is tremendous.” He also praised Ranbir Kapoor for his hard work, emphasising that his role in the film was difficult and complicated.
Talking about Bobby Deol’s appearance in the film, Prem Chopra said, “Even Bobby Deol is very good in a special appearance. All of them are very impactful.”
He further took the opportunity to reflect on the portrayal of negative characters in films, drawing a parallel with his iconic film, Bobby, released in 1973. He said, “In those days, we were stamped as the bad guys… It was in a straight way, whether Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, Pran sahab or anyone else, it was like, ‘Yeh gadbad karne wale hain’ (people knew that we were up to some mischief).”
The theme of the movie revolves around a son’s deep affection for his father, who is frequently away due to work commitments. This leads to a lack of understanding regarding the intensity of the son’s love, creating an ironic situation where this intense love and admiration for family becomes the source of conflict between the father and son.
Ranbir Kapoor takes on the role of Ranvijay, while Anil Kapoor portrays the character of his father, Balbir Singh. This family drama showcases the complexities of their relationships. Prem Chopra also has a guest appearance in Animal. Sandeep Vanga’s Animal is doing well globally. The action film crossed another milestone as it breached the Rs 600 crore gross mark worldwide, according to T-series. The film also features Rashmika Mandanna, Triptii Dimri, Shakti Kapoor, Saloni Batra, and more in pivotal roles.
