Rashmika Mandanna recently talked about her Animal co-star Ranbir Kapoor. The actress, who is all set to foray into the Hindi film industry with her upcoming Bollywood films, including Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s film Animal, was recently shooting with Ranbir in Manali. Talking about her work experience with him, the actor said that he addresses her as ‘madam’.
When asked about Ranbir, Rashmika told a leading magazine, “He’s extremely loving. I was, of course, nervous when I met him first, but I think he’s so easygoing that five minutes into the look test, we were already very comfortable with each other. Thinking about it, it’s amazing how easy it’s been so far with Ranbir and Sandeep.” “And he’s the only one in the whole industry who calls me ‘ma’am,’ and I do not like it. I will get him for this one,” she added while laughing.
Rashmika also shared her thoughts on the term ‘pan-Indian star’ during her interaction. Amid the ongoing language debate in the Indian film industry, she added, “I always wanted to learn different languages because I wanted to feel closer to my audiences through my movies and my voice, so the concept of "pan-Indian star" just came along. For me, as long as I can reach the heart of the audience across the globe, I will do it, even if it means learning many more languages.”
The crime drama has already stirred much anticipation amongst the audiences due to a subtle yet powerful title teaser released earlier and the names associated with it. The movie has commenced its shoot this summer with an anticipated release date of August 11, 2023. Animal is produced by Bhushan Kumar & Krishan Kumar's T-Series, Murad Khetani's Cine1 Studios and Pranay Reddy Vanga's Bhadrakali Pictures.
