The upcoming Amazon original, based on true events, is set to premiere on Prime Video on February 23. It explores the largest ivory poaching ring in Indian history, PTI reported from Mumbai.
Bhatt, through her production banner Eternal Sunshine Productions, expressed her excitement about contributing to a project with a powerful narrative addressing wildlife crime.
She stated, “The impact of ‘Poacher’ was deeply personal, and Richie’s portrayal of the urgent issue of wildlife crime resonated strongly with me and the team.”
