Ranbir Kapoor reveals his first reaction to Animal’s script.

Ranbir Kapoor Got Scared After Listening to Animal Script

Speaking with Telugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna on his show, Unstoppable with NBK, Ranbir recalled that he spent good five to six minutes in the bathroom after he heard the script which left Sandeep Reddy Vanga panicking. “I think when Sandeep sir came to narrate the story to me, the title was very different. It was a different title but when he made me hear the story, I remember I said, ‘Sir, one minute.’ I went to the bathroom and didn’t come out for five minutes,” he said.

“I was so scared to play this part because I felt it was so different from all the characters I have done and I am also grateful that he was giving me an opportunity to play a part like this. Not many directors see me in roles like this. And outside, he was smoking cigarettes because he was thinking (he was panicking),” Ranbir added.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga Thought Ranbir Kapoor Was Going to Reject Animal

Owing to his prolonged disappearance, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga thought that this was Ranbir’s style of rejecting films. “I narrated the script, the story was over and he said he would be back and left the room. But he won’t come out. I thought it was probably his style of saying no. I thought this was how Hindi actor probably say no when they don’t like scripts,” Sandeep confessed.

“By then I had already quit smoking. But in that tension (I began smoking again) and Ranbir asked me, ‘You quit smoking, right?’ I told him I am stopping. He then said, ‘You did a good job (with the script), we are doing this.’ For the first five minutes, I got tensed and wonder what had happened.” he recalled.

Why Did Ranbir Kapoor Lock Himself in the Bathroom?

Ranbir felt he wouldn’t be able to pull off the role. “I was looking at myself in the mirror and I really wanted to see if I could see myself like this character because how he was seeing me. Thankfully he held my hand through the film and the character but it was something that I thought I couldn’t do. All credit goes to him,” he said.
