Ram Gopal Varma continued to write in his tweet, “3. Every Indian is now exposed to each other Indian in terms of what kind of ANIMALS are hidden in all of us. 4. The mega box office proves that all Indians now love and respect a not-to-be-loved and respected director (Sandeep Reddy Vanga). 5.

Ram Gopal Varma’s Animal review

A couple of days after Animal’s release on December 1, Ram Gopal Varma shared a long note detailing what he thought of the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial.

He wrote in a statement he shared on X, “There will be massive fights over the content and the character of Ranbir in Animal long after its box office run is over and I truly believe it can also trigger a cultural overhaul due to the way Sandeep has ripped off the clothes of moral hypocrisy with his bare naked honesty. That is because Animal is not merely a film… it is a social statement.”
