While Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal continues to dominate the box office and face criticism for its perceived misogyny, violence, and vulgarity, a new discussion point has emerged. The age gap between Ranbir Kapoor and Charu Shankar, who portrays his mother in the movie, has become a topic of debate among audiences.
Unveiling the Surprising Age Gap
Charu Shankar, who plays the role of Jyoti B Singh, the wife of Balbir R Singh (portrayed by a 66-year-old Anil Kapoor) and mother of Ranvijay “Vijay” Balbir Singh (played by a 41-year-old Ranbir Kapoor), is revealed to be only one year older than Ranbir Kapoor in real life.
