It’s like wow! It’s amazing."

Bobby Deol took one month to learn sign language for Animal

Talking about the same in an interview with the IANS, Bobby stated that he was shocked at the beginning when he was told he would have no lines in the movie. Speaking along the same lines, he mentioned that he had to learn sign language for one month to act in the film. Bobby said:

"I was unsure of how to approach it, but that made it more thrilling and difficult for me. I studied sign language for a month, and it was quite beneficial."
