Anil Kapoor made a stylish appearance in an all-black outfit at the premiere night as he donned a black jacket, paired with matching t-shirt and pants.

During the promotional event in Chennai, Ranbir opened up on why Sandeep Reddy Vanga's next directorial has been titled 'Animal'. Ranbir said, "Once you see the film, you will understand."

He went on to elaborate the reason and said, “I think the reason why Sandeep Reddy Vanga called this film Animal is because animal behaves out of instinct. They don't behave out of thought. So this character that I'm playing, he behaves out of instinct to protect his family.”

“He is not thinking he is behaving out of instinct, he is impulsive, and I think that's where the title Animal came and once you see the film you'll realise that this film suits this title,” he added.
