'Animal', whose running time is 3 hours 21 minutes, is slated to hit the cinemas on December 1. Advance bookings for the Telugu version have been on in the Telugu States.
Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga has carved the A-rated movie as one of the most macabre ones ever on the Indian screen. Moderate sex scenes have been included in 'Animal'. Partial breast nudity, exposing of the buttocks and the depiction of domestic abuse have been included in the film (unless removed for the Indian version).
There are moderate verbal references to "sex, pornography, sex work, and pubic hair". Forced sex, humiliation of a woman post intercourse, and the use of strong language are other elements that have officially been confirmed.
Written, directed and edited by Vanga, the T-Series production has Rashmika Mandanna as Ranbir's pair. Netizens have been trolling her dialogue delivery in the trailer, saying that her words are incomprehensible.
