Meanwhile in a recent interview with Mid-day, Bobby spoke about his chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor on screen who plays his nemesis. "In my first meeting with Sandeep, he explained to me the whole story of my character. He had said, 'I am going to depict your and Ranbir's relationship as a love story. And I am going to play a romantic, emotional song during the fight scene between you and him.' He had planned it before, and the song he selected was so amazing. It was amazing how he had conceived the whole thing already. You will see many bare body fight scenes between two people on screen, but the kind of animalistic, manly feel there is in this scene is rare. I love when people say there's romantic chemistry between us. I love him as an actor first of all. I am a big fan of him and Alia. I feel so lucky that I got a chance to work with Ranbir and got to know him. He is just amazing,” he says, adding that he believes Ranbir is deserving of every bit of success that Animal is earning.
