Triptii Dimri opens up on Animal's 'lick my shoe' scene!
Thu December 07th, 2023
After Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal, in which she plays the role of Zoya, became a box office hit, Triptii Dimri's fame took off. The movie, which stars Bobby Deol, Triptii, Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and Ranbir Kapoor, has been making waves at the box office. The moment in which Ranbir's character begs Zoya to lick his shoe has become one of the most talked-about parts of the movie, despite certain netizens calling out specific scenes. Now that she has discussed the incident, Triptii has responded to the label of "new national crush."
Triptii Dimri stated that she is aware of the discussion that Animal has sparked in an interview with a daily. She clarified that there was no "apprehension" because the scene was completed following extensive conversation with Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Ranbir Kapoor. Speaking about the same subject, she recalled the advice given to her by her acting coach: "Never judge your character." According to Triptii, every character one plays is human and has both good and bad aspects.
“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. So that’s what I kept in mind,” revealed the talented actress.
She also thought about how she would respond if the roles were switched. “I also thought that here was a woman who talks about killing his wife, father, kids, the entire family…. If someone tells me that, I will perhaps beat that person!” revealed Triptii. She claimed that after asking her to kiss his shoe, Ranbir's character turns to leave.
“He clearly is going through a lot of these (intense thoughts). Later when his cousins asks her what they should do with me, he says ‘Let her go wherever she wants to,’” revealed Triptii.
The actress also responded to being referred to as the "national crush" and "Bhabhi 2" and to her rapidly growing Instagram following. She expressed her flattering feelings. She feels validated by the Instagram numbers as well, and although she is appreciative of the love, she doesn't want to get hung up on them. “I know that people are also calling me that and honestly it just feels very, very overwhelming,” told Triptii.
