Vicky Kaushal and Ranbir Kapoor are two of the most celebrated actors in Bollywood today, known for their versatility and willingness to tackle challenging roles. So it should come as no surprise that both their forthcoming movies – Sam Bahadur and Animal – are anticipated by both fans and critics.
However, both films will be released simultaneously on December 1, 2023 – which has raised some speculation as to their box office success and whether their clash may impact performance negatively or positively.
Kaushal recently addressed any worries over box office competition by assuring us both films would do well at box offices around the country. He stated his confidence that both will do just fine at opening week.
Kaushal expressed her excitement regarding Animal. “This will be a fantastic day for the audience – not for us individually!”
Kaushal said he believes the box office battle will work to both films’ advantages. According to him, more audiences can choose which films they watch while also helping both to promote themselves effectively.
“I think it is fantastic that both movies will be released simultaneously, as this gives audiences more choice while helping promote both of our projects,” Kaushal commented. “We all work towards the success of each project!”
Kaushal’s upbeat outlook toward box office rivalry is refreshing and infectiously optimistic; his focus appears not on competing, but instead producing films audiences will enjoy. Such an approach should serve all actors well – surely Kaushal can use this attitude for long term success?
Here is some more information about the two films:
Sam Bahadur is an epic biopic about Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, one of India’s greatest war heroes. Kaushal stars as Field Marshal Manekshaw while director Meghna Gulzar helms.
Animal is a crime thriller directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, best known for helming Telugu film Arjun Reddy. Shahid Kapoor stars as the lead role in Animal, alongside Rashmika Mandanna and Anil Kapoor in supporting roles.
Sam Bahadur and Animal are highly anticipated films that should perform well at the box office when released on December 1, 2023.
