Animal Crosses Pathaan and Becomes the Biggest Opener of Ranbir Kapoor

“Animal,” directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, is creating ripples at the box office and marks a key milestone in the actor’s career. The family crime thriller, which also stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, and Triptii Dimri, has received widespread acclaim for its gripping plot and compelling performances.

Record-Breaking Collection

“Animal” broke records by generating a whopping Rs 116 crore on its first day at the international box office. T-Series boasted that it was the “biggest non-holiday opening in Hindi cinema ever worldwide.” The film’s graphic depiction of a violent society set against the backdrop of a problematic father-son relationship enthralled audiences in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.

2nd Day Stats

The second day was equally successful, with “Animal” continuing its triumphal run at the box office. With an extra Rs 30 crore on the second day, the film is on track to gross Rs 66 crore in India alone, surpassing Shah Rukh Khan’s “Pathaan” in both global and domestic opening day receipts.

Global Impact of the Movie

According to trade expert Ramesh Bala, the picture performed exceptionally well in second-day advance bookings, garnering the best sales compared to other recent releases. The film’s popularity isn’t limited to India; it also made a big effect in North America, generating $2.5 million and became the highest-grossing Hindi picture on day one.

Critics and Controversy

While “Animal” has received mixed reviews, with fans admiring Ranbir Kapoor’s powerful performance, other reviewers have expressed reservations about director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s controversial storytelling method. Despite competing with Meghna Gulzar’s “Sam Bahadur” at the box office, “Animal” has emerged as the biggest opening for a ‘Adults’ approved picture, demonstrating its broad popularity.

The film’s box office performance, particularly in a non-festival, non-holiday release, says volumes about the film’s reception among audiences. As “Animal” continues to roar at the box office, it illustrates the power of high-quality film to fascinate people from all over the world.
