Filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal made heads turn right when its announcement video was out, much before the film went on floors. Ranbir Kapoor’s powerful dialogues played the trick there. Ever since, the anticipation for the film kept growing. And once its trailer was out last week, the excitement for the film reached a crescendo. Ranbir’s electrifying transformation as a man possessed by his obsessive love for his father, played by Anil Kapoor, is something that has shocked and amazed the audience.
Animal’s high anticipation is also visible from the positive advance booking the film has taken so far for its first day on December 1. As per latest information available to us, the movie has sold 248,000 tickets at PVR Inox outlets and 67,000 tickets at Cinepolis chains. Apart from these two chains, Animal has sold 30,000 and 11,500 tickets respectively in Miraj and MovieMax cinemas. The total comes down to an impressive 356,500 tickets being sold for the opening day.
These numbers are enough to indicate that Animal is going to erupt at the box office on its opening day.
One should note that these are the sales of tickets only at the two aforementioned cinema chains and it doesn’t include the sales of tickets at other multiplex chains and single screen theatres across the country.
Apart from Ranbir and Anil, Bobby Deol’s appearance from the trailer has also turned out to be intriguing. The film also stars Rashmika Mandanna and Tripti Dimri.
Animal is produced under the banners of T-Series, Cine1 Studios and Bhadrakali Pictures.
