Actor Vijay Raaz's upcoming film "Mission Tiger", which promotes the message of saving tigers, will be released on International Tiger Day on July 29.
"Tiger is the national animal of our country, but some people have been cruel to our national treasure and have killed numerous tigers for various reasons. A few years ago we (the country) had to initiate a Save Tiger initiative, and we are also fulfilling that initiative with our film," Jayveer Panghaal from Mates Entertainment that has backed the film, told IANS.
"Our film seeks to highlight the menace of tiger poaching in an entertaining and thrilling manner, yet raising awareness about the issue. There was no better day than International Tiger Day to release the film, as the issue then reaches the maximum people," Panghaal added.
The film stars versatile actor Vijay, known for his work in films like "Monsoon Wedding", "Delhi Belly" and "Run".
Said to be high on action and emotions, the movie talks about people indulging in tiger poaching with dialogues about increase in 'demand' for tigers.
"Mission Tiger" directed by Dipu Karunakaran, is jointly produced by Saju Fortune and Leegesh S.L. under the banner Fortune Cinemas.
