Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the maverick director known for his bold storytelling and gripping narratives, has created ripples in the Bollywood landscape with his upcoming crime drama, ‘Animal.’ What makes this film particularly intriguing is Sandeep’s choice to cast the charismatic and versatile Ranbir Kapoor, often hailed as the quintessential ‘chocolate boy,’ in the intense role of the ‘Animal.’ In a recent interview, Vanga delved into the process of envisioning Ranbir Kapoor as the ferocious protagonist and the transformative journey that defines this highly anticipated crime drama.

In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, the director of ‘Animal’ Sandeep Reddy Vanga revealed that when he saw Ranbir in films like Rockstar, Tamasha and others, he understood that he would be fit for an action or violent film. As a writer-director he saw the potential in him to play the part in Animal, but he still took him by surprise with the action bit, he said that he’s great at it. Ranbir Kapoor, celebrated for his charming and boyish persona, has predominantly been associated with romantic and coming-of-age roles. However, ‘Animal’ marks a significant departure from this stereotype, as Vanga saw beyond the ‘chocolate boy’ image and envisioned Kapoor as the formidable lead in a gritty crime drama.
