Animal Actor Siddhant Karnick Reacts To Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Bra Strap Pulling’ Scene

New Delhi: The controversial film ‘Animal’, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, proved a hit at the box office despite accusations that it normalises toxic masculinity, misogyny and violence. With Animal’s recent success, actor Siddhant Karnick is enjoying a wave of good reviews. In the film, the actor was the husband of Saloni Batra and brother-in-law of Ranbir Kapoor. Now Siddhant has spoken out in support of the bra-strap scene between Ranbir and Rashmika Mandanna in an interview.

Siddhant Karnick expressed his understanding of Ranbir’s character’s intention to display kinkiness via the pulling of the bra strap. In an interview with Bollywood Now, the actor said “I understood the kinkiness Ranbir’s character was trying to show with the bra strap. See there are terms called masochism and sadism, which are used in sexual orientation. That showed that Rashmika’s character could be a masochist. She was agreeable to that kind of act.”

The actor went on to say that viewers would get the impression that something is amiss with what’s transpiring on screen. He defended Sandeep Reddy’s film and its characters, saying, “We, as audience, feel that was happening is wrong. But actually, in cinema, it’s between those two characters and it is right for them.” So why are we judging that? They are telling us about the characters and what the characters, it is upto them.”

Meanwhile, ‘Animal’ has become a year-end smash. The global box office receipts for the film have topped 800 crore rupees. Shakti Kapoor, Bobby Deol, and Anil Kapoor also star in it. Released on Dec 1, the film centres around an unhealthy son-father dynamic.
