Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal has turned out to be a major winner in the overseas market, especially at the North American box office. The film was enjoying a good pre-release buzz in the market, but the response that it has received has been phenomenal so far. In the latest development, it has surpassed the lifetime collection of Jr NTR and Ram Charan’s RRR. Keep reading to know more!

Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the action thriller marks his 3rd film in his entire career and his 2nd Bollywood film. With Kabir Singh, Vanga stepped into Bollywood, and that romantic drama starring Kabir Singh and Kiara Advani was a blockbuster success. It became a modern-day cult, and Vanga was praised for his raw portrayal of a love story. This time, however, he received a backlash for being too brutal for no reason.

Tremendous success at the North American box office

Unlike Kabir Singh, Animal has received polarising reactions. However, in terms of success, the film has turned out to be a monster and has pulled off crazy numbers so far. As per the trade analyst Nishit Shaw, the film has now become the 4th highest-grossing Indian film of all time at the North American box office.

In the run of 23 days, Animal has amassed a staggering collection of $14.33 million at the North American box office. With this, it has surpassed the lifetime collection of RRR ($14.32 million). Remember that the SS Rajamouli directorial earned the aforementioned number in its theatrical original run, and it doesn’t include re-runs. Including re-runs, RRR stands at $15.34 million.
