Tiger Shroff is literally living upto his name. On the occasion of International Tiger Day (29 July), the actor, who plays a superhero in the upcoming film, A Flying Jatt, has sent a letter on behalf of PETA India to environment minister Anil Dave urging him to ensure that government focus is on protecting tigers in their natural homes.

In his letter, Tiger writes, "I know environmental issues are important to you, as they are to me. 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".

Tiger has followed in his dad, Jackie Shroff’s (who is also a PETA India ambassador) footsteps when it comes to supporting the cause of animals. “I adopted a tigress at a zoo because I wanted to help these animals, but where tigers really need protection is in their natural homes, where they have ample space to roam, spend time with their families, and engage in other natural behaviour,” he further wrote in the letter.

Cheers to Tiger for roaring at a worthy cause!
