MUMBAI:  Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has made her directorial debut by helming a public service film on tiger and nature conservation, on the the occasion of World Tiger Day.

The film aims to spread a vital message about tiger and nature conservation through the voices of children belonging to different age groups.

"This has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Involving our future generation in this initiative has been nothing short of enlightening and fulfilling for me.

"As tigers struggle for survival, I hope that the message sent out is strong enough to nudge our nation to guarantee tiger protection from threats like poaching, and intrusion into their natural habitat," Dia said in a statement.

"We need to remember, what happens to the tiger, to our forests and our rivers, ultimately affects each one of us," she said.

The film has been written by Cara Tejpal and Sahil Sangha, captured by ace photographer Rohan Shrestha and produced by Born Free Entertainment.

Despite countries such as India, Nepal, Russia and Bhutan registering a spike in the tiger population, the status of the animal still remains 'endangered', the statement said.
