Ranbir Kapoor's take on Kabir Singh's success and Sundeep Reddy Vanga
"When I watched Arjun Reddy before the announcement of Kabir Singh, I thought no love story could be better than this. Then, Sandeep created the same love story in Kabir Singh, and I said I challenge that it cannot be a hit because what Arjun Reddy had done, the brilliance, the performances, the music, it couldn't be recreated. But he did it again."
Kapoor on Animal script and story
When Sandeep sir came to narrate the story to me, the title was very different. It was a different title but when he made me hear the story, I remember I said, 'Sir, one minute! I went to the bathroom and didn't come out for five minutes. I was so scared to play this part because I felt it was so different from all the characters I have done and I am also grateful that he was giving me an opportunity to play a part like this. Not many directors see me in roles like this.”
