Animal has bypassed all expectations at this point in time to emerge as a blockbuster at the box office with its record-breaking run ever since its release on December 1. The film has managed to earn more than Rs 800 crore at the global box office and hence has become the 3rd highest grossing film of the year after Jawan and Pathaan. It surpassed the lifetime collections of Sunny Deol's Gadar 2.
The film was particularly talked about for Bobby Deol's performance. Now, Sandeep Reddy Vanga has spilled some beans on the reason for a lesser screen time for his character in the film.
Along with all the other things that the film chose to do differently, introducing the villain later in the second half after more than 2 hours of the film had passed was a daring move. Speaking of the same, Sandeep said, "Everybody knew from the teaser and trailer that Bobby Deol is the villain, and I knew they were going to wait for him. So, from the beginning, right after 15 minutes into the film, you know there is tension about the villain, but we do not see his face."
Further, he added, "Even after the interval, I thought I could open him, but I thought it was a very routine way to open the villain in a film. So, I made the audience wait for almost 28-30 minutes, and then I introduced him as a bridegroom."
That's why Sandeep Reddy Vanga chose to have Bobby Deol introduced later in the second half.
Bobby Deol had also spoken of his character in the film and called his character having a lesser screen time.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga also spoke of the climax of the film and said that he always visualized it as the two heroes and villains fighting shirtless with each other. "So, when I imagined that, I wanted someone macho who was broader than Ranbir and more powerful than him. I could not think of anyone but Bobby, sir."
Animal also starred Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, Tripti Dimri, and Suresh Oberoi in important roles.
