In a remarkable feat, Ranbir Kapoor’s latest film, ‘Animal,’ has exhibited unstoppable performance at the box office, amassing a staggering ₹338.85 crore within its first week in India. Despite facing criticism for its depiction of violence and misogyny, the movie continues to draw audiences, collecting ₹25.5 crore on Thursday alone, according to early estimates from Sacnilk.com.

The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial, featuring an ensemble cast including Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and Bobby Deol, displayed strong occupancy rates with 30.43% in Hindi, 23.43% in Telugu, and 20.64% in Tamil on Thursday. ‘Animal’ made an impactful debut, raking in ₹63.8 crore on Friday and reaching ₹71.46 crore by its first Sunday.

While the film received mixed reviews, Ranbir Kapoor and Bobby Deol’s performances have garnered praise from the audience. Congress Rajya Sabha MP Ranjeet Ranjan voiced concerns about ‘Animal’ in the parliamentary session, condemning its portrayal of violence and misogyny. She specifically criticized the use of the song ‘Arjan Vailly’ in the film, highlighting its historical significance in Sikh history and questioning the Central Board of Film Certification for approving the contentious scenes.

As ‘Animal’ maintains its momentum at the box office, crossing the ₹338 crore milestone, it remains to be seen how the film will fare in the coming weeks amid the ongoing debate surrounding its content and impact on the audience.
