Ac­tor Tiger Shroff (left) is not only don­ning the su­per­hero cape in reel life, but in real life as well. The ac­tor is urg­ing the gov­ern­ment to pro­tect the big cats in the jun­gles.

On the oc­ca­sion of In­ter­na­tional Tiger Day, the ac­tor has sent a let­ter on be­half of PETA In­dia to Union Min­is­ter of State for En­vi­ron­ment, Anil Mad­hav Dave, urg­ing him to en­sure that gov­ern­ment fo­cuses on pro­tect­ing tigers in their nat­u­ral homes.

He wrote in his let­ter, ,“I join my friends at Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals (PETA) In­dia in hop­ing that un­der your lead­er­ship, we will see the gov­ern­ment fo­cus its con­ser­va­tion ef­forts to­ward pro­tect­ing In­dia’s re­main­ing forests and bring­ing in ad­di­tional mea­sures to safe­guard tigers and other an­i­mals in our pre­cious jun­gles.”

The ac­tor, who had pre­vi­ously spon­sored a fe­male tiger in a zoo, pointed out that the place where tigers re­ally need pro­tec­tion is in their nat­u­ral homes, where they have am­ple space to roam and can spend time with their fam­i­lies and en­gage in other nat­u­ral be­hav­iour. Shroff will be seen as a su­per­hero in his up­com­ing film.
