“As part of this initiative, I tried to depict and imbibe the nature, kindness and ferocity of the beast through Kalaripayattu,” he added.
The actor continued: “Saving the tiger population is certainly the need of the hour. Its survival and presence play a crucial role in the sustenance, balance and well-being of the ecosystem. It is our duty to conserve their habitat and help increase the number of wild tigers in any way we can.”
In the campaign video, Vidyut is seen performing Kalaripayattu moves inspired by the movements of tigers, and is seen encouraging people to pitch in to help conserve the habitat.
