“Animal” has showcased exceptional performance, particularly in two distant regions of the globe: North America in the West and Australia – New Zealand in the East. These areas have historically been strongholds for Ranbir Kapoor films, and this time around, the movie benefited from the added advantage of director Sandeep Reddy, who holds considerable influence over the Telugu diaspora, a significant presence in these regions.

In North America, the film achieved a remarkable opening day, amassing USD 2.80 million, including previews. Notably, it set a new record for the highest previews ever for a Bollywood film, although it should be noted that previews are not as common for many films. The true Friday earnings amounted to USD 1.60 million, marking the third-best opening day in the history of the industry. In Canada, it claimed the top spot for the biggest Friday with nearly CAD 600K, surpassing Pathaan’s CAD 540K.
