She said, “When I met Richie Mehta, he took me through the world of Poacher. He was at the heart of creating at that time. When I saw a bit of what he had created and then the whole thing, my response was as a person, ‘Listen, what can I do to help?’ Let’s do something.”

Alia Bhatt added, “You give the tag of executive producer but actually, it is just the intent to put this story out there for as many people to see.”

It follows a diverse group of wildlife custodians comprising forest crime fighters, police personnel, and good Samaritans, in their relentless quest to expose the largest ivory poaching ring in Indian history. But will the silent victims of these criminal acts – the helpless elephants – receive the justice they truly deserve? This question resonates deeply within the core of this thought-provoking crime series. Based on true events, Poacher skillfully sheds light on the consequences of human actions driven by personal gain and greed, thereby emphasizing the potential risks and endangering these species.

Poacher, which unfolds primarily in Malayalam, Hindi and English, premiered on Prime Video on February 23 in multiple languages.
