Ranbir Kapoor’s makers Animal built a 500kg machine gun from scratch, actor says ‘It was a great idea from Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Suresh Selvarajan’: Bollywood News
Actors Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna’s next film Animal, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, is slated to release this week. With just a few days left for the film to hit the big screens and it is expected to collide with Vicky Kaushal’s Sam Bahadur in the theatres, the anticipation is at an all-time high. The trailer gives a glimpse into the hyper-violent crime saga led by Kapoor. In one of the scenes, Ranbir is seen using a machine gun. Turns out it’s not VFX but was created from scratch.
Ranbir Kapoor’s makers Animal built a 500 kg machine gun from scratch, the actor said, “It was a great idea from Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Suresh Selvarajan.”
The makers of Animal recently attended a promotional event in Chennai ahead of the film’s release. At the conference, they were asked about machine gun trolling and computer-generated imagery (CGI). However, Animal’s production designer Suresh Selvarajan clarified that the machine gun, which weighed 500 kg, was built from scratch over a period of four months. He would apparently appear during the 18-minute interval block. “I have never seen such a thing happen in any Indian film. This was Sandeep’s vision,” he was quoted as saying.
Ranbir also added, “I remember the first time Suresh Anna showed us the war machine, I was shocked. He created it from scratch. It’s such an original piece. It was a great idea from Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Suresh Anna.
He added: “We don’t shoot real weapons. We have to pretend, imagine that if we operated a machine that big, what would it do to our bodies and our ears because we have to keep filming for hours. I really had to imagine that because the bullets were under siege, they weren’t real. That’s the magic of cinema.
Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series, Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios and Pranay Reddy Vanga’s Bhadrakali Pictures supported Animal. The film is released on December 1, 2023.
