The campaign will start from next month and Taapsee will be seen in it as the face of campaign. Earlier the campaign has been supported by the likes of Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Irrfan Khan and others.
Speaking about it she said, “Firstly, my sun sign is Leo and from childhood I had a fascination of this big cats. I find them extremely beautiful and the power that they have is very regal and elegant. Once I had read somewhere that there were about 1000 tigers left and that was very alarming and when this opportunity came my way I jumped for this opportunity. I have shot for the campaign and when I travel I love to meet them in natural surroundings and not in trapped zoos. I make people aware in whatever capacity I can.”
The show will start from 2nd of October and Taapsee will be seen in the promos of the show for spreading awareness on the cause of extinction of Tigers.
