Tripti Dimri and Ranbir Kapoor in Animal.
Triptii Dimri opens up about her parents’ reaction to her intimate scenes with Ranbir Kapoor in Animal.
Triptii Dimri revealed her parents were ‘taken aback’ after watching her intimate scenes in Animal. The actress has gained popularity after her performance in Ranbir Kapoor starrer Animal. Not only has she been dubbed as the national crush for her performance in the movie, she has also grabbed eyeballs with her bold intimate scenes in the movie with Ranbir. In a new interview, Triptii revealed her parents watched the film and were surprised by the inimate scenes. She added that they took time to process it.
Speaking with Bollywood Hungama, Triptii said, “My parents got a little taken aback. (They said) ‘We have never seen something like this in films and you have done it.’ It took them time to get over that scene. They were very sweet to me though. They were like, ‘You shouldn’t have done that but it’s okay. As parents, we will obviously feel this.’”
“I told them I am not doing anything wrong. It’s my job and as long as I am comfortable and safe, I don’t see any problem in that. I am an actor and I have to be 100 percent honest with the character that I play and I did that,” she added.
Triptii had previously opened up about filming the scene. She revealed that only five people were allowed on the set the day it was being shot. She added that Ranbir was constantly checking on her if she was okay while filming the scene.
“Luckily, in my case, I’ve been dealing with whether I was doing the rape scene in Bulbull (her 2020 Netflix film) or this one, they kept asking me if I am okay. They also ensured that there were no more than five people, including the director, the DOP, and the actors during the scene. Nobody else was allowed on set, all the monitors were shut, and they were like, ‘this is the scene we are doing. If at any point you feel you’re uncomfortable, let us know. We’ll go at your pace,” Triptii said as quoted by Instant Bollywood.
“Every five minutes, Ranbir Kapoor was checking up on me and asking, ‘Are you okay, are you comfortable?’ I think these things really matter. People are sensitive to these things,” the actress added.
Triptii’s popularity has shot up since the release of Animal. The actress has witnessed a massive jump in her followers following the release of the film.
