NEW DELHI: ‘Animal,’ featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna, emerged as one of the most-discussed movies of 2023. Following ‘Jawan’, it secured the position of the second-highest-grossing film, generating over Rs 800 crores worldwide and surpassing Rs 550 crores at the Indian box office. Despite facing criticism for its brutal violence and perceived sexism, this crime action-drama defied expectations from critics and some viewers to become one of the top-earning Hindi films of 2023.

The movie garnered varied feedback from both critics and viewers. Now, for those eager to watch the film on a streaming platform and haven’t seen it in theatres, there’s good news. As per a recent report, ‘Animal’, featuring Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, and Triptii Dimri, will be accessible on Netflix starting January 26, 2024, coinciding with Republic Day.

However, there has been no official statement from either the movie’s producers or its main cast regarding this matter.

The potential OTT release of ‘Animal’, surrounded by numerous controversies, may lead to unforeseen outcomes. Due to their broader accessibility and reach, OTT platforms can amplify discussions, allowing not just those attending theatres but people worldwide to watch and promptly express their varied opinions. With the imminent release of ‘Animal’ on Netflix, discussions may extend beyond the film’s box office success. The evolution or resolution of these controversies is yet to be determined.

In a previous interview with Komal Nahta, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the director of ‘Animal’, expressed his meticulous approach to every detail. Vanga mentioned feeling upset when he encountered sound issues just a day before the release, and Ranbir had to reassure and calm him down afterward.

He further disclosed that he initially had a three-hour, thirty-minute version but had to trim it by eight or nine minutes due to external pressures. Currently, he is in the process of editing the Netflix version, incorporating a few additional shots. Sandeep mentioned, “I’m using that footage for the Netflix version of Animal.” Despite this, a recent media source assured that the film will be accessible on Netflix with all its uncensored parts included.
