Right from the announcement onwards, things are going well for the film as each promotional material has turned out to be successful so far.

While the film was already high on buzz, the exciting trailer has taken the hype to the next level. Easily, this one is poised to be among the biggest openers of 2023.
Animal is all set to surprise everyone with its box office opening!
Scheduled to release on 1st December, the Ranbir Kapoor starrer is showing bumper response in the advance booking for day 1. In fact, it has left beyond a big film like Tiger 3 in pre-sales. Just imagine, this madness is happening despite the film being a regular Friday release and ‘A’ rated.
