Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film was released on 1st December.

It is also receiving a backlash on moral grounds for its brutal content and is a hot topic of discussion.
Animal roaring at the worldwide box office
On day 1, Animal raked in 116 crores gross at the worldwide box office, becoming 3rd Bollywood film to score a century on its opening day after Pathaan and Jawan. Yesterday, the film remained rock steady and again pulled off massive numbers. As per the official update, 120 crores gross came in on Saturday, which is simply outstanding.
After two days, the Ranbir Kapoor starrer stands at a colossal sum of 236 crores gross and has already surpassed Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar’s 221.28 crores gross. It has also crossed the lifetime collection of Salman Khan’s Tubelight (223.24 crores gross) and Ajay Devgn-led Total Dhamaal (223.36 crores gross).
Within a week, Animal will surpass Ranbir’s Brahmastra, which did a business of 430.24 crores gross at the worldwide box office.
Animal soon to surpass Kabir Singh
Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s directorial debut, Kabir Singh, was a blockbuster success and earned 368.32 crores gross in the lifetime run. This figure will be crossed by Animal today itself or tomorrow, which speaks volumes of how big a box office monster this film is turning out to be.
