Ranbir Kapoor is currently on a promotional spree for his highly anticipated film 'Animal,' written and directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. During one of these events, the actor appeared on Tel ugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna's show, "Unstoppable with NBK." In his conversation with the superstar, Ranbir shared insights into his initial reaction to the script of 'Animal.'

The actor, who is set to showcase a never-before-seen avatar in the film, revealed that he ran to the bathroom after hearing the script. Ranbir said, “I think when Sandeep sir came to narrate the story to me, the title was very different. It was a different title but when he made me hear the story, I remember I said, ‘Sir, one minute.’ I went to the bathroom and didn’t come out for five minutes,” he said.

“I was so scared to play this part because I felt it was so different from all the characters I have done and I am also grateful that he was giving me an opportunity to play a part like this. Not many directors see me in roles like this. And outside, he was smoking cigarettes because he was thinking (he was panicking),” Ranbir added.

Further in the episode, Ranbir shared that he felt he couldn’t do the role. “I was looking at myself in the mirror and I really wanted to see if I could see myself like this character because how he was seeing me. Thankfully he held my hand through the film and the character but it was something that I thought I couldn’t do. All credit goes to him,” he said.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga who joined Ranbir on the show revealed how he felt that Ranbir would decline the script and said, “I narrated the script, the story was over and he said he would be back and left the room. But he won’t come out. I thought it was probably his style of saying no. I thought this was how Hindi actor probably say no when they don’t like scripts”.

He further added, “By then I had already quit smoking. But in that tension (I began smoking again) and Ranbir asked me, ‘You quit smoking, right?’ I told him I am stopping. He then said, ‘You did a good job (with the script), we are doing this.’ For the first five minutes, I got tensed and wonder what had happened.”


Animal is set to release on December 1, 2023. Stay tuned to OTTplay for more.
