Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal is slated for theatrical release on the 1st of December and the advance bookings are on fire for the intense action drama.
In the main Hindi market, the film is projected to collect in the range of Rs 50 crores nett in India on its opening day. This will be the biggest-ever opener for Ranbir, surpassing Bramhastra.
Scoring Rs 50 crores nett in Hindi with the second film would certainly be a big feat from Sandeep. Ranbir could also be looking at mass crowd pull with this film, something he missed in the past.
In the Telugu states, the film is seeing pretty good advance bookings and is on course to register the biggest openings ever for a Hindi film in AP and Telangana. The trends are particularly good in the Hyderabad market.
In the USA, the film had collected Rs 300K+ from the advance sales which is again a good number. The overseas collections will pick up the pace as Ranbir is a big name in the overseas market.
At this rate, Animal is wreaking havoc at the box office with the advance sales. But the 3 hours 21 minutes runtime is going to be a big gamble and if it pays off, the film can set the box office on absolute fire this weekend.
