MP slams Animal, use of song Arjan Vailly
On Thursday, Congress Rajya Sabha MP Ranjeet Ranjan slammed the film in the Rajya Sabha. She said according to ANI, "Cinema is a mirror to society. We have all grown up watching films. Cinema has a great deal of influence in society, especially among the youth. Nowadays, there are some films that are coming, like Kabir (Singh), Pushpa and now this film, Animal. My daughter and a bunch of other children were watching the film. They cried and left the theatre at halftime. The film's justification of violence and misogyny is shameful."
Ranjeet Ranjan also raised concern over the use of the song Arjan Vailly in the film. She said that Arjan Vailly was a prominent figure in Sikh history and was known for his bravery and valour. She said the film's use of the song to highlight the gang war was offensive and also questioned Central Board of Film Certification for passing the film.
