Sandeep Reddy Vanga helmed Animal was a major blockbuster at the box office. Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna in lead roles, the action drama streamed on Netflix on January 26, 2024. It is unlocking all new milestones on the streaming platforms and has now left behind SS Rajamouli‘s RRR. Scroll below for all the details!
Action dramas tend to enjoy a lot of footfall, but in terms of Ranbir Kapoor’s film, many favorable factors were attached. There was never-seen-before violence in Bollywood, an emotional family angle, and the controversial sequences that stirred the pot. Sandeep Reddy Vanga had done it before with Kabir Singh, so this was no surprise!
