One of the most anticipated movies of the year, Animal features a cast that seems promising, with Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, and others slated to play significant roles. The trailer for the movie was unveiled on November 23, and fans are eagerly waiting to watch it on the big screens.

Fans are excited for the movie's release, but they are also drawn in by Bobby Deol's character, which has not been revealed much thus far. In New Delhi, the movie's trailer debuted yesterday, November 23. The actor revealed that he had been cast in the movie during his "bekaari ke din" during the launch.

Bobby Deol told the journalists at the launch that he never would have imagined landing such a "great role" because of the situation of his career.

He recalled the moments when he received a message from Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the director, saying he was interested in seeing him. Bobby began to wonder if that was really him or if someone was making fun of him as a result. Bobby continued by saying that he later discovered it was actually Sandeep.

“Maine kaha yaar phone lagao fatafat. Phone lagaya and maine bola chalo milte hain. We met and mujhe yeh aakar ek photograph dikhate hain (I asked to meet and called him right away. He showed me a picture when we first met),” the Badal actor added.

The actor said that the filmmaker had shown him a picture from his days of playing Celebrity Cricket League when he didn't have plenty of work to do. He stated, "Toh vahaan ek photo kheechi gayi thi jahaan main door kahin dekh raha hoon. Toh unhone mujhe dikhayi aur kaha main aapko issi liye lena chahta hoon kyuki aapki yeh jo photograpgh hai, isme jo aapka expression hai, voh mujhe chahiye. I said chalo bekaari ke din kaam aagaye." (He had a picture of me from my days playing in the Celebrity Cricket League, back when I wasn't working as such. He informed me that he wanted me to be in the movie because of the expression I had in the picture. I believed that having good jobless days was also beneficial.)
