After a hiatus of almost two-and-a-half years, Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor is set to return to the big screen in the lead role of "Animal," which will be directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
Actor Anil Kapoor, who starred in the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire, will also feature in the upcoming movie. He announced the news on Twitter on New Year's Day.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who will be directing "Animal," burst onto the scene with commercially successful film "Arjun Reddy" that was screened in India's regional language of Telugu. His movie "Kabir Singh," a romantic drama also made in Hindi, was also a big hit in the country. Like Anil, Vanga posted the teaser of the upcoming "Animal" on his Twitter account.
Film lovers took to social media and shared their excitement on the return of Ranbir Kapoor to the big screen and gave a big shout out to the movie teaser.
