Animal, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and starring Ranbir Kapoor, made its theatrical debut last Friday, generating a considerable buzz on social media and attaining box office success. Despite the film’s success, a specific sequence has become the focus of online debate.
A sensual scene starring Ranbir Kapoor and Triptii Dimri has elicited both enthusiastic applause and criticism from viewers.
Triptii Dimri addressed the controversy and shared her take on the topic in a recent interview with Etimes. She frankly confessed that the initial criticism bothered her, especially given that her career has largely been welcomed with good audience reactions.
The Qala actress revealed that she received 90% positive feedback and 10% negative feedback from viewers. This time, however, was different – a hybrid of the two.
She admitted that external forces did not compel her into this profession; rather, she embraced it with enthusiasm for the opportunity to play a variety of personalities in numerous projects. ‘Animal’ has garnered widespread outrage on social media, with various scenes receiving harsh condemnation.
Strong arguments have been made against practically every aspect of the film, with many criticizing it as ‘ sexist,’ notably in its representation of women.
