Accumulative Box Office Collection of “Animal” on Day 7
The Bollywood film “Animal” headlined by Ranbir Kapoor has crossed the ₹500 crore mark in global gross revenues. Since its release on December 1, the film has maintained a strong foothold at the box office. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film, featuring Ranbir Kapoor, was released in five languages: Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam. According to reports, on the seventh day, the film earned a net ₹25.50 crore in India, taking its total domestic earnings to ₹313.35 crore. The occupancy rates for the film were reported as 20.64 percent in Tamil, 23.43 percent in Telugu, and 30.43 percent in Hindi.

With the current earnings, “Animal” is poised to be Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest box office hit. Despite criticisms about the film’s portrayal of excessive violence, toxic masculinity, and misogyny, many laud Ranbir Kapoor’s performance as the standout. Bobby Deol’s portrayal of the eerily silent, sinister character Abrar has also received much appreciation from the audience.

However, the film has received its share of controversy. Rajya Sabha Congress member Ranjeet Ranjan took umbrage over the use of the song “Arjan Vailly” in the movie, citing it as disrespectful. According to Ranjan, Arjan Vailly is a respected figure in Sikh history, known for his courage and valour and being the son of the 19th-century Sikh military commander Hari Singh Nalwa. The song’s usage to highlight gang rivalry in the film was deemed inappropriate by Ranjan, who also questioned the Central Board of Film Certification’s decision to approve such films, which she views as detrimental to the culture. The film “Animal” received an ‘A’ certificate from the CBFC ahead of its release.

The movie “Animal” revolves around a violent world set against the strained relationship between Ranbir Singh, played by Anil Kapoor, and his real-life father Ranvijay Singh. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series, Cine1 Studios (Murad Khetani), and Bhadrakali Pictures (Pranay Reddy Vanga).
