The speculations have been confirmed! Ranbir Kapoor's hit movie, 'Animal,' is gearing up for its digital premiere with an extended edition!

This much-anticipated OTT debut on Netflix is scheduled for Republic Day, January 26, 2024, and is expected to feature new footage. Amidst swirling rumors of an extended version, recent reports validate that the digital release will be a few minutes longer than its theatrical counterpart, creating a wave of excitement among fans.

Initially running at 3 hours and 21 minutes, 'Animal' will now showcase an additional 8 minutes, extending the overall runtime to 3 hours and 29 minutes. Sources suggest that this extended cut will include a new scene with lead actress Rashmika Mandanna, bringing a fresh perspective to the storyline.

Whispers about the extended version gained momentum after director Sandeep Reddy Vanga acknowledged its existence in a recent interview. He revealed plans to incorporate scenes left out from the theatrical release, expressing regret over the initial cuts. Vanga hinted at a more comprehensive storytelling experience for the audience, stating, "Now, I will be using those 5-6 minutes extra."

'Animal,' featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and Anil Kapoor, narrates a compelling story of a son's unwavering dedication to his absent father. Despite facing criticism for its depiction of violence and misogyny, the film emerged as one of the major Indian blockbusters of 2023, currently ranking as the third-highest grossing film worldwide with a total collection of Rs 915 crore.

The OTT release of 'Animal' coincides with the theatrical launch of Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone's 'Fighter,' adding an extra layer of excitement to the extended Republic Day weekend.
