Animal actress Rashmika Mandanna opened up about slapping Ranbir Kapoor in the film. The Sandeep Reddy Vanga film released last month and was a blockbuster. In the film, Rashmika essayed the role of Ranbir’s wife and in one of the scenes, she was seen slapping the actor’s character Ranvijay. In a new interview, Rashmika opened up about the intense scene and said that it was shot in one take and she cried after the scene was done. “The whole sequence was one take because there was a lot of moving. It wasn’t predictable. I didn’t know what I was going to do. Sandeep told me just to feel how a person in this situation would feel. I remember only this. I don’t remember anything between the action and the cut. I just can’t process it. My brain was just going blank,” Rashmika told Pinkvilla. Although the scene concluded, Rashmika said she was still in that moment and continued to cry even after the shot was done. She even went up to Ranbir and asked if he was okay. “After the sequence, I was crying for real. I have slapped him, I am screaming, the chaos is happening and I go to Ranbir and I am like, ‘Was that okay? Are you okay?’” she said. The scene was shot in one take. “We finished that sequence in half a day. I loved it, and at that moment I realised that this is the high of being an actor. People don’t write sequences like this every time. I am so glad that I did this movie and this sequence. I was surprised with myself,” Rashmika said. Animal revolves around a man and his toxic relationship with his father. The film shows Vijay (played by Ranbir) as an anti-hero who would go to any lengths to protect his father, including gun down 200 people with machine gun. However, despite his efforts, he struggles to get a seal of approval from his emotionally unavailable father (played by Anil Kapoor). Animal has already crossed the Rs 500 crore mark at the Indian box office.
