Sandeep Vanga’s Animal was surrounded by various controversies during its release, and when it landed on Netflix, these controversies helped the film garner huge views, benefiting the streaming platform.

Laapataa Ladies has garnered strong viewership on Netflix, surpassing Animal’s 13.6 million views. It now stands as the second most-viewed Indian film on Netflix this year, with 13.8 million views, trailing only Hrithik’s Fighter (14 million).

The interesting fact is that Animal features sleazy hot scenes, bold language, large-scale action, and a star hero like Ranbir. However, Laapataa Ladies has none of these, offering instead a simple emotional story and a clean family watch. Beating a star hero film like Animal is no easy feat.
