Panaji, Nov 27 (PTI) Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham has joined hands with three-time Green Oscar winning filmmaker Mike Pandey to produce a feature length documentary about the plight of tigers in the country.

“It’s a fiction on a tigress and her three cubs which deals with the current scenario of haphazard forest management,” Arjun Pandey, promoter of the film, told PTI.

The Bollywood actor will be financing 30 per cent of the production cost and the filmmakers are looking for investments from other sources also. “The documentary is budgeted at Rs 8 crore,” Pandey, here for the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), said today.

The film is expected to kick off a national ‘Save the Tiger Campaign’ in the country, which houses half of the global tiger population, he said.

“The world has about 2,500 tigers left and half of them are in India.
