Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has made her directorial debut by helming a public service film on tiger and nature conservation, on the occasion of World Tiger Day. The actress had a wish to carry out her commitment to championing causes connected with nature to the next level.
The film which was released on YouTube aims to spread a vital message about tiger and nature conservation through the voices of children belonging to different age groups. “This has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Involving our future generation in this initiative has been nothing short of enlightening and fulfilling for me. As tigers struggle for survival, I hope that the message sent out is strong enough to nudge our nation to guarantee tiger protection from threats like poaching, and intrusion into their natural habitat,” Dia said in a statement.
“Dia Mirza joined the Sanctuary family over three years ago when she spearheaded our ‘Leave Me Alone’ campaign. Since then she has evolved into a highly credible voice for conservation, tirelessly supporting issues that are crucial but lack visibility. By conceptualising and directing this PSA, Dia has crafted a poignant message from over one million Kids For Tigers to the elders who are in control of their lives. We demand you leave us a better world. All we need to do is protect nature and nature will protect us,” said Bittu Sahgal, the Sanctuary Asia head & well-known conservationist. �Indian Express
