Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s film Animal continues to see immense success. It has now become the second highest grossing film of 2023, surpassing even Shah Rukh Khan’s popular Pathaan. Despite being in its 6th week in theaters, Animal is still drawing large audiences and adding shows, even with new big releases like Dunki and Salaar Part 1 around.
In its 6th weekend alone, Animal added nearly Rs 2.5 crore to its total, bringing it to over Rs 550 crore so far. The only 2023 film ahead of it is Jawan with Rs 643 crore.
The makers recently held a success party to celebrate Animal’s achievements. Ranbir Kapoor thanked fans, saying the film’s numbers prove that the audience’s love for a movie triumphs over any controversies.
Many factors were stacked against Animal, like its runtime over 3 hours, A rating, and clash with Vicky Kaushal’s Sam Bahadur. But it overcame them all. It still has a few days left before Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupati’s Merry Christmas releases on January 12.
