(They said) ‘We have never seen something like this in films and you have done it.’ It took them time to get over that scene. They were very sweet to me though.

She further added how she told her parents that it was her responsibility as an actor to make that part as honest as possible. “I told them I am not doing anything wrong. It’s my job and as long as I am comfortable and safe, I don’t see any problem in that. I am an actor and I have to be 100 percent honest with the character that I play and I did that,” she mentioned.
Triptii has earlier said that director Sandeep Reddy Vanga told her about every scene while talking about her part, and made her comfortable on set. The actor also revealed that even though she knows that the scenes have sparked debate, humans also have a dark and selfish side.
Animal has emerged as the highest-grossing film at the box office of Ranbir’s career. The film chronicles the toxic relationship between Rannvijay (Ranbir) and his father Balbir Singh (Anil Kapoor). It also stars Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna in key roles.
