    The OTT premiere of Animal is expected to take place after 6 to 8 weeks of theatrical run. As per the report from Smart Prix, the film is expected to stream on Netflix. The film was recently granted an ‘A’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Talking about the lengthy runtime of the film, Ranbir Kapoor said the storyline required this amount of time to reach the audience. “We saw the first cut that was 3 hours and 49 mins and we were entertained. Don't be panicked by the length and just come experience cinema at its best,” he told India Today.
