'Animal,' a much-anticipated mafia drama starring Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy Vanga, has been delayed by four months due to a VFX glitch. Due to the VFX delay, the picture was withdrawn from the three-way Independence Day battle, leaving the slot free for 'Gadar 2' and 'Oh! My God 2.' According to our reliable sources, 'Animal' will now be released in December. (Also Read: Animal Pre-Teaser: Alia Bhatt’s Reaction For Husband Ranbir Kapoor’s Video Is UNMISSABLE! (View Pic))
A Source revealed, “Animal is among the most ambitious films produced by Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani, and they are standing by the director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, as he needs more time to give a world-class product. Sandeep is a perfectionist and wants to release an uncompromised product on the VFX front. The teams were working day and night to complete the film, but the action scenes are so grand that it is not possible to have their best version ready for August 11. After seeing the vision for Sandeep, and the output that would have been ready by August 11, the producers along with Ranbir Kapoor took a collective call to delay the film to December.”
The tentative release date for 'Animal' is December 1,2023 which is three weeks after 'Tiger 3' and three weeks before 'Dunki.'
A source further added, “The team believes that arriving on December 1, 2023 will give the film a 3-week window as no other film would want to come in the middle of 3 event sagas – ‘Tiger 3,’ ‘Animal,’ and ‘Dunki.’ It’s a well-strategized date that they locked, and a 4-month delay will give the makers enough time to complete the VFX work.” (Also Read: Is Ranbir Kapoor Taking Inspiration from Kartik Aaryan's Strategic For The Promotion Of His Upcoming Film 'Animal'?)
