Makers of the upcoming action-crime drama ‘Animal’ unveiled the film’s official trailer on Thursday.

Helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film stars Ranbir, Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol in lead roles.

‘Animal’ explores a father-son relationship, played by Anil and Ranbir Kapoor.

The 3-minute-32-second trailer hinted that Ranbir’s character has turned fierce because of his violent upbringing.

Ranbir’s character is protective and obsessive about his father’s love. Ranbir, as Balbir Singh, is seen threatening everybody who comes in the way of his love for his father.

The trailer also reveals Rashmika Mandanna as Ranbir’s love interest. Bobby Deol is playing the antagonist in the film, who makes a stylish yet menacing appearance in the trailer.

Recently, Ranbir spoke about the film and his character.

He said, “It was a deliberate choice on my part to explore a different side of myself on-screen with ‘Animal’. As an actor, I always strive to challenge myself and push the boundaries of my abilities. ‘Animal’ presented a unique opportunity to break away from my previous on-screen image and delve into a character that is multi-dimensional and complex.”

“I believe it’s important for actors to constantly evolve and surprise audiences and ‘Animal’ allowed me to do just that. I hope viewers will appreciate this new facet of my performance and enjoy the film as much as I did while working on it.”

The actor further talked about his film and said that it is a gripping and intense tale.” ’Animal’ is a gripping and intense film that delves into the depths of human emotions and relationships. It explores the complexities of life and the choices we make, with a narrative that keeps you on the edge of your seat.”

Opening up about his character in the film, he added, “My character is a fascinating blend of strength, vulnerability and unpredictability. He is driven by his past experiences and carries a certain darkness within him, which adds an intriguing layer to his persona.”

“As the story unfolds, you will witness the evolution of this character and the impact he has on the overall narrative. It’s a role that challenged me as an actor and allowed me to explore new depths in my performance. I believe audiences will be captivated by the intensity and depth of ‘Animal’ and the characters within it,” he said.

‘Animal’ is all set to hit the theatres on December 1 and will be released in five languages — Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
