Sharing his opinion about the film, Abhijeet said that he watched Animal and really liked the film, which he also stars Bobby Deol, Rashmika MandannaAnil Kapoor and Winter Triptych between others. He then addressed the reviews and how people are having a lot of complaints about the film.
He feels that those who object to the film's treatment may be right on their part, but he also defended Animal by saying that the story is not just about a father and son relationship and that everyone is interpreting it incorrectly.
He further explained that the film's story is about a man who sees the world in a completely different way. “To show its brutality, some unjustified things were shown in the film. The film itself is based on the story of a monkey who in the end resorts to his true nature, and is therefore an Animal,” he added.

Abhijeet shared his views on Instagram and continued, “In a scene in the film, Ranbir is speaking to the workers at his factory called Swastika, it is almost Hitler-like. Hitler bent to burn the world to the ground, but he never admitted his mistakes and justified his evil actions. He (Ranbir's character in Animal) also justified his mistakes. So understand the film differently and then you will like the film.”
Meanwhile, Animal has crossed the Rs 750 gross mark worldwide since its release on December 1. The pan-Indian film was released in five languages - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. It is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar for T-Series, Murad Khetani for Cine1 Studios and Pranay Reddy Vanga for Bhadrakali Pictures.
