In his career as an actor, which spans over 15 long years, Ranbir has played many different roles. But the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial features the heartthrob in his very first grey shade character. Talking about the same to Mid Day, Ranbir revealed, “I was [stunned] to hear the script. It’s the most shocking part I have ever done. I am scared to rejoin that film. It is a great opportunity for me as an actor. No one expects me to do such a role. I hope the audience is ready for that film from me.”
He went on to add, “The movie requires me to nail the grey shades rightly, and the physicality adds to [the character’s menacing ways] in terms of visuals. I have put on a lot of muscle.” The gangster drama stars Anil Kapoor as Ranbir’s on-screen father whereas National crush Rashmika Mandanna will be seen as his wife. Animal also stars Bobby Deol in a pivotal role.
After trying his hand at action, Ranbir is now busy shooting for a gangster drama. He is experimenting more as an actor and his fans could not have been happier. We wish Ranbir 2.0 all the very best!
