The competition is fierce, with both films vying for the audience's attention and a spot at the top of the box office charts.

Multilingual Flavors: Animal's Diverse Release

"Animal" is not limiting its reach to the Hindi audience alone. The movie is hitting the screens in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam as well.
