Ranbir Kapoor’s action-thriller Animal is set to be released on December 1, which was pushed back from its original date to give the audience a more polished film. The decision to move the date was to avoid a theatrical clash with Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 and Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2. Animal, which also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, and Tripti Dimri, is directed by Sandeep Reddy, who has directed hits such as Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh. The extra time will be used to refine and fine-tune the content, so that it meets the highest standards of excellence. The movie is produced by Bhushan Kumar and will be released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
