At a press conference in Bengaluru, Ranbir was asked about the lengthy runtime of Animal when he said, “We are not releasing a film this long because we are arrogant about it. We felt that the story required this amount of time to reach the audience in the best way possible.”
“All of us have seen the cut of this film which was 3 hours, 49 minutes, and that also held. Wo bhi entertaining tha. But sandeep has worked very hard to bring the length down. Because you cannot stretch it that much also. But hope that the audience doesn’t get panicked by the length. Just come and experience cinema at its best,” the actor added. Animal will hit theatres on december 1. This means that the film will clash at the box office with Vicky Kaushal’s sam Bahadur.
