Get ready as Animal is set to hit the theatres on December 1! Ahead of its theatrical release, Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna and the team of the film are leaving no stone unearthed to promote the film in full josh. Currently, the team is present in Chennai wherein they expressed in detail what makes this film special. Ranbir Kapoor – the lead actor of the film, even outlined how he prepared himself to essay such a gruesome character.
Ranbir Kapoor describes how he prepped for such a ‘violent’ character
In a press meet held in Chennai, Ranbir Kapoor elaborated on how he prepared for his dark and violent character in ‘Animal’. He said, “You have to switch off your (personal) character. You can’t take your character and emotions home. That’s your skill as an actor and a professional.”
Soon after Ranbir Kapoor made this comment, social media users began comparing him with Ranveer Singh. While many of them found the comparison between the two unnecessary, some of them felt that Ranveer Singh should learn acting from Ranbir Kapoor.
One X user said, “Dekho Ranveer Dekho”. Another X user said, “Khilji baba aise karne ka tha...” One more X user said, “Why can I smell hatred against Ranveer Singh here?”
A few years ago, Ranveer Singh shared how he prepared for his character Khilji portrayed in Padmaavat. Ranveer in 2018 told the Indian Express, “I took 21 days and locked myself up in my Goregaon house. I was completely isolated. I kind of isolated myself, marinated into the character because I can’t relate to Alaudin Khilji, I can’t relate to that level of manipulativeness, greed and ambition. I had to tap into dark experiences, but his worldview is not something I can relate to also.”
