New Delhi/IBNS-CMEDIA: As Ranbir Kapoor’s much-awaited action film ‘Animal’ gets ready to hit the theatres on Friday, the Censor Board has granted the film an Adults Only or  ‘A’ certification.

As per an image of the report being shared widely on social media, the film lasts 203 minutes or 3 hours 23 minutes.

The Censor Board has asked director Sandeep Reddy Vanga to make five changes to the film.

One change involves “intimate visuals,” and addressing it, the report says, “Modified the intimate visuals of Vijay and Zoya by deleting the close-up shots at TCR 02:28:37.” Additionally, CBFC ordered a word at 1 hour and 31 minutes to be modified to “Black” and the word “vastra”  to be replaced with “costume”.

Two undisclosed dialogues were modified to “Kabhi nahin” and “Kya bol rahe ho aap”. The word “natak” at 2 hours and 13 minutes was muted, and the subtitles were changed to “You change pads four times a month.”

Led by Ranbir Kapoor, ‘Animal’ stars Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor and Triptii Dimri in pivotal roles.

Despite the obvious violence and action in the film, the trailer depicts a complicated father-son relationship drama. While Anil Kapoor plays the father, Balbir Singh, the son’s role of Arjun Singh is essayed by Ranbir Kapoor.
