Animal box office: Ranbir Kapoor starrer crushes Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan to become 2nd highest grosser of all time

Despite the dominance of Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki and Prabhas’ Salaar, Ranbir Kapoor starrer continued to garner footfalls at the box office. In fact, the film has achieved a new milestone at the ticket windows. The film currently stands with a grand total of Rs 543.50 crore* (all versions) and has surpassed the business of Pathaan (Rs 543.05 crore including all versions) to become the second-highest grosser of all time after Jawan (Rs 643.87 crore including all versions).

Since there is no release this Friday, Animal has the potential to hit the Rs 550 crore mark at the box office. The film has already emerged as the highest grosser of Ranbir Kapoor surpassing Sanju along with the complete cast and director Sandeep Reddy Vanga.

Before the release of the film, during the Chennai event, Ranbir revealed why the film’s title is Animal 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 realize that this film suits this title.”

Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga of Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy fame, Animal also stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, Sonali Batra, Tripti Dimri and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles. It locked horns with Vicky Kaushal, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra starrer Sam Bahadur at the ticket windows.
