Varun Grover takes a dig at Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s ‘Animal’; humorously suggests renaming ‘All India Rank’ as ‘Animal 2’ to attract more viewers

Comedian and scriptwriter Varun Grover, who is known for his work in projects like ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ and ‘Sacred Games’, is all set to make his directorial debut with ‘All India Rank’.

Amidst the prevailing trend of box office hits dominated by hyper-masculine, action-packed films, releasing a movie like All India Rank might appear risky, but Varun remains optimistic. In an interview with FM Fever, the writer humorously suggested that renaming their film ‘Animal 2’ without altering the script might attract more viewers, drawn by the anticipation of intense action scenes.

Following Anurag Kashyap’s endorsement of Animal director Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the filmmaker encountered backlash from his fans and former colleagues like Neeraj Ghaywan and Varun. Ghaywan expressed his disapproval with a simple yet powerful comment, ‘Cringe,’ while Varun responded with a straightforward ‘No.’

Set in the 1990s, the film follows the journey of a young boy named Vivek, who faces parental pressure to pursue admission into an IIT. It delves into the struggles of leaving home, embarking on a new chapter of life, and navigating the cutthroat competition among teenagers vying to secure a spot at the prestigious institute. Presented by Sriram Raghavan, the film is scheduled for release on February 23rd.

The comedian disclosed that releasing the film wasn’t entirely his decision, especially following the trend of intense male-centric narratives on screen. However, securing a theatrical release for a movie like All India Rank holds significant importance, considering it took nearly a decade to bring it to fruition. He emphasized the importance of having diverse offerings in cinemas, advocating for space for gentler films like his. He expressed his love for blockbuster action movies but stressed the need for theaters to accommodate a variety of narratives, including those centered around everyday life, drama, comedy, and simple rom-coms without extravagant elements. According to him, cinema halls should serve as a platform for all types of films to thrive.
