'Animal' is the most talked about movie of this year. Sandeep Reddy Vanga once said in an interview that he would show everyone what a violent film is and with the Ranbir Kapoor starrer he kept his promise. Like his previous films- 'Arjun Reddy' and 'Kabir Singh', 'Animal' has also got polarising reactions. However, it has been said that it is Ranbir's best performance till date. The cast also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Triptii Dimri among others. Everyone has pulled off their roles well including Triptii though she has limited screen time in the movie.
Amidst charges of misogyny, violence and vulgarity, people are talking about the intimate scene between Ranbir and Triptii's characters. In an interview, the 'Qala' actress opened up about the sequence.
Triptii who plays Zoya in the action drama told India Today that she was informed about the intimate scene on the script level itself. She added, “While signing the project, Sandeep told me that there’s a scene and I want to shoot it this way, but I will make it look aesthetically amazing. I want to create a Beauty and the Beast kind of image. And this is what I have. I leave it up to you, whether you're comfortable or not comfortable, you let me know, we'll work around it is what he told me.”
“So, when I saw the references, I was like ‘wow, it’s an important moment between the two characters. That made me comfortable. Also, on set, you need to be completely honest, you must leave yourself aside and be that person. For that, even the environment matters a lot. How people around you are making you feel, whether they're making you feel comfortable or not, that matters a lot,'' said the 'Bulbbul' actor.
Triptii also revealed how Ranbir and Sandeep made her feel comfortable while doing the scenes. She also said that Ranbir made sure that she didn't feel awkward.
The actress added, “And luckily, in my case, I've been dealing with whether I was doing the rape scene in Bulbull or this one, they kept asking me if I am okay. They also ensured that there were no more than 5 people, including the director, the DOP, and the actors during the scene. Nobody else was allowed on set, all the monitors were shut, and they were like, ‘this is the scene we are doing. If at any point you feel you're uncomfortable, let us know. We'll go at your pace. Every five minutes, Ranbir was checking up on me and asking, ‘are you okay, are you comfortable?’ I think these things really matter. People are sensitive to these things.”
Meanwhile, 'Animal' has taken the box office by storm. It has already crossed the Rs 300 crore mark in India.
