Thank you so much. Transitioning to Bollywood has been quite a ride. Working with someone like Ranbir Kapoor in Animal has been a learning experience. He is down-to-earth despite being a star.


Your first film was a love story. Can you share insights about Animal?

Animal, indeed is a love story between a father and son. It’s a family drama exploring the emotions tied to the lengths one goes for a family, depicting a poignant narrative.


The trailer suggests that there will be strong emotions, too. Will the movie lean towards emotions or violence?

Animal strikes a balance between emotions and violence. The equilibrium will be maintained throughout the film, providing an immersive experience.


As Animal is over three hours, will it be unconventional?

Animal is a family drama with layers, portraying a different kind of story. Arjun Reddy might be considered unconventional for its time. Animal follows a more traditional format, utilizing the three-hour runtime to convey intricate family details.

The title reflects the hero’s instinctive behavior, which will be akin to animals. I enjoy editing because it is a challenging job. My films hold personal meaning, and editing allows me to convey that emotion.
