Shocking : Animal, Ranbir Kapoor’s Upcoming Film to Have Extended OTT Runtime

Ranbir Kapoor’s highly anticipated film “Animal” is set to have an extended runtime for its OTT release. The film, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, will reportedly have a runtime of 230 minutes, which is 30 minutes longer than its theatrical version.

Speaking about the lengthy runtime, Ranbir Kapoor said, “The story of ‘Animal’ requires this amount of time to reach the audience. We saw the first cut that was 3 hours and 49 mins and we were entertained. Don’t be panicked by the length, just come experience cinema at its best.”

The makers of the film initially planned to release the same version in theaters with two intervals, but they faced resistance from distributors who were concerned about the long runtime. As a result, some scenes were removed from the theatrical version, resulting in a runtime of 3 hours and 21 minutes.

However, the makers believe that the full story of “Animal” can only be experienced with the extended runtime. They are confident that the OTT audience will appreciate the film’s immersive storytelling and grand scale.

“Animal” is a crime drama that also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, and Bobby Deol. The film is set in the 1980s and follows the story of a gangster who rises to power.

The film is scheduled to release in theaters on November 30, 2023. The OTT release date is yet to be announced.
