The film is anticipated to perform exceptionally well at the box office, with a reported 3,34,173 tickets already sold across 7,200 shows in India. This translates to an advance ticket sales figure of ₹9.75 crore, encompassing all languages and theaters in the country.
Breaking down the figures, the Telugu version of “Animal” has generated ₹91.48 lakh in business, selling 58,465 tickets for 643 shows on its opening day.

During a promotional event in Hyderabad, guest Mahesh Babu expressed his admiration for Ranbir Kapoor, stating, “I am a huge Ranbir Kapoor fan, and in my opinion, he is the best actor in India.” The film’s official trailer, released a few days ago, garnered a massive response from fans.
