Animal worldwide box office collection day 16 : Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s action film has entered the ₹800 crore club in style. Animal features Ranbir Kapoor.
Animal worldwide box office collection day 16 : Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the Ranbir Kapoor film, which features Bobby Deol as the antagonist, has set a new record in Australia and Canada. It surpassed Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathaan’s collections in both markets to take the top spot. On Sunday, the makers also announced the film had crossed ₹800 crore gross worldwide.
Animal dominates worldwide box office
Animal, which also features Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, Triptii Dimri and Shakti Kapoor, has grossed ₹816.3 crore worldwide in 16 days. Animal, which was released on December 1 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam, has been doing very well in not only the US, but also in Canada and Australia.
Despite its controversial themes and mixed to negative reviews, Animal has surpassed expectations and become Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest-ever film. Animal’s success is surprising because of its long runtime – the movie clocks in at nearly three-and-a-half hours – and adult rating, making it the highest-grossing A-rated Indian film of all time.
The movie has been criticised for its glorification of toxic masculinity and disregard for the misogynistic behaviour of its lead characters. Earlier, filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga was also slammed for similar treatment in his Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017), starring Vijay Deverakonda, and its Hindi-language remake, Kabir Singh (2019), starring Shahid Kapoor.
