The movie Animal, featuring Ranbir Kapoor, has been a massive success at the box office, setting new records. Apart from Ranbir, the action-packed drama also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, and Anil Kapoor in pivotal roles. However, amid this ensemble, another figure making waves is Triptii Dimri. Despite having limited screen time, Dimri makes a notable impact with her portrayal as "the other woman" in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's narrative. Her on-screen chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor has garnered significant attention and buzz among fans.


Triptii Dimri's portrayal of an intimate scene with Ranbir Kapoor in Animal may have garnered her a new fan base, but it also deeply unsettled her parents. Speaking with Vogue India, Dimri opened up about the sequence with Kapoor, revealing that she had to engage in a lengthy conversation with her parents after they watched the film.

Despite any concerns raised, she defended her decision to take on the role in Animal, stating, "I know my reasons for doing the film." She emphasised the importance of choosing roles that challenge her and push her out of her comfort zone, regardless of potential audience reactions. Reflecting on the intimate scene, She said, "If we start making decisions based on what audiences are going to say, then as actors, we won’t ever be able to do what we want to do. I want to choose roles that push me out of my comfort zone. There’s a lot of advice on offer and I listen to it all, but it comes down to instinct. I might make mistakes along the way, but I’m allowed to."

Vanga's latest film, much like Kabir Singh, faced significant scrutiny for its depiction of masculinity and particularly for its portrayal of women. Dimri is conscious of the ongoing discussions surrounding the movie's themes. In an interview with the Indian Express, she addressed the prevalent conversation and engaged in discussion about it.

Triptii Dimri Opens Up About Her Character And Filming Intimate Scenes

She said, "It reminded me of what my acting coach had told me, the golden rule: Never judge your character. The characters you are playing, the character your co-actor is playing, all are human and humans have good and bad side. An actor must be prepared to play characters across the spectrum of good, bad and ugly, but if you judge a character’s motivations, thoughts, you won’t be able to play it with honesty."

In her conversation with IndiaToday, she mentioned the recognition she's been receiving and delved into her discussions with Sandeep sir regarding her character. She said, "When I had discussions with Sandeep sir about the character, he told me that this is a negative character, but I don’t want you to show the negative side of her; instead, people should see the innocence in her."


She discussed the intimate scenes in the film and highlighted Ranbir and Sandeep's efforts to ensure her comfort. She mentioned Ranbir's consistent checks every 5 minutes to ensure she felt at ease. "And luckily, in my case, I've been dealing with whether I was doing the rape scene in Bulbull or this one, they kept asking me if I am okay. They also ensured that there were no more than 5 people, including the director, the DOP, and the actors during the scene. Nobody else was allowed on set, all the monitors were shut"
