Ranbir Kapoor plays a privileged, bratty, aggressive kid in Animal, demonstrating his adaptability amid endless slaughter. Fans are praising the film’s production design as well as its intense sequences, music, and acting.

The Hindustan Times and Indian Express report that the movie’s lavish home is the Pataudi Palace in Delhi, adding to its appeal.

Animal displays the opulent lifestyle that Ranbir’s family leads at Saif Ali Khan’s Pataudi Palace. Fans have observed the uncanny parallels between the film’s interiors and the Pataudi Palace, confirming that the palace is crucial to the film’s visual appeal.

This architectural jewel, Ibrahim Kothi, is located in Pataudi, Gurgaon, Haryana. Saif’s grandfather, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, built the palace, which has a regal history. The property was passed down to Saif by his father, cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan, and then bought from a hotel company. The mansion is home to Saif’s mother, the esteemed actress Sharmila Tagore, giving another familial tie to Ranbir’s stay during Animal filming.

The mansion has 150 rooms, including seven dressing rooms, bedrooms, and billiard rooms, on 10 acres. Its grand hallways, lofty arches, and artwork create a royal atmosphere. The property’s extensive gardens enhance its beauty and provide a picturesque backdrop for animals.

Pataudi Palace, worth INR800 crore, hosted Animal and other major films. The palace has been used in Bollywood films like Mangal Pandey, Veer Zara, Gandhi: My Father, and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, as well as Julia Roberts’ Eat, Pray, Love. Saif’s Prime Video series Tandav was filmed in Pataudi Palace’s regal hallways, proving its versatility and appeal for Bollywood and foreign projects.

The reveal of Pataudi Palace’s major part adds mystery to Animal’s plot, merging cinematic genius with the royal residence’s rich history and luxury.
