Amidst the overwhelming praise, Triptii Dimri also addressed some of the critical feedback she received for her intimate scenes with Ranbir Kapoor in Animal. Addressing her parents’ reaction to the film, the actress told Bollywood Hungama, “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.’ And 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.”

In an interaction with ETimes, Triptii Dimri admitted that she was initially affected by the backlash she received for the intimate scene in Animal. “Honestly, the scene is getting a lot of criticism and it did disturb me initially, because I’m someone who has hardly faced criticism. I was also taken aback. But then, I sat myself down and I thought about it. Nobody forced me to become an actor. I wanted to do it because I found it exciting. And as I started doing it, the characters that I played, started healing a part of me. And I started having fun with the process,” she added.

Triptii Dimri will be next seen in Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video, alongside Rajkummar Rao and an Anand Tiwari film with Vicky Kaushal.
