Animal Parineeti Chopra Exit Sandeep Reddy Vanga

Animal Parineeti Chopra Exit: Filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga discussed Parineeti Chopra's departure from Animal recently. For those unfamiliar, Parineeti Chopra was initially chosen for the role of Geetanjali in the Ranbir Kapoor starrer. However, Rashmika Mandanna eventually replaced Parineeti in the film.

While Sandeep had previously mentioned that Parineeti didn't quite fit the role during the look test, he now revealed that he decided to part ways with her a year and a half after signing her for the film, and she was understandably upset about it.

In a conversation with trade analyst Komal Nahta, the Animal director disclosed that although Parineeti was disappointed, she understood the importance of casting the right person for the film. "Actually, galati mera hi hai. I said, 'Ho sake toh maaf karo mujhe.' I signed her one and a half years before the shoot and for some reason, I didn't see Geetanjali in her. Kuch kuch characters kuch kuch logo ko set nahi hota hai." Sandeep Reddy Vanga explained.

He further mentioned that he has been an admirer of her work for a long time and even considered her for Kabir Singh, starring Shahid Kapoor. "I always wanted to work with her. I told her and she also knows that. I told her, 'Sorry, nothing is bigger than the film. So I'm taking this decision and going ahead with another artist.' She felt bad but she understood why I was saying that," he added.

In Animal, Ranbir Kapoor played the lead role, while Rashmika portrayed his wife, Geetanjali. The movie depicted a toxic couple whose marriage was profoundly affected by the man's strong attachment to his father. Animal has performed exceptionally well at the box office, grossing over Rs 532.77 crores (at the time of reporting) in India alone, making it Ranbir Kapoor's most successful film in his career.
