On Tuesday, it was revealed that Alia Bhatt has joined as the executive producer for the crime series Poacher. The series, created by Richie Mehta, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, will feature Nimisha Sajayan, Roshan Mathew, and Dibyendu Bhattacharya in the main roles.
Sharing the poster of the series, the makers took to social media and wrote, “Beneath the silence, the forest reveals a deadly conspiracy… and the hunt for the Poacher begins! Alia Bhatt comes on board as #ExecutiveProducer on #PoacherOnPrime, a new Amazon Original Crime series, Feb 23.”
Poacher is a true crime investigative series that delves into the problem of ivory poaching in India. The web series combines environmental conservation and entertainment to shed light on the issue of illegal poaching. Richie is the creator, writer, and director of the series, which will be available in Malayalam, Hindi, and English.
Talking about coming on board as the Executive Producer for Poacher, Alia Bhatt shared, “Being part of this incredibly significant project is an honour, for both me and the entire team at Eternal Sunshine Productions. The impact of Poacher was deeply personal, and Richie’s portrayal of the urgent issue of wildlife crime resonated strongly with me and the team. The storytelling genuinely moved me, especially knowing it’s based on true events, that sheds light on brutal crimes occurring in our forests. I am confident that Poacher will serve as an eye-opener, delivering a powerful message to be more compassionate and considerate towards all living beings. It’s a call to embrace coexistence and I am genuinely thrilled to be collaborating with Richie, QC and Prime Video and to contribute to this narrative.”
Poacher is executive produced by QC Entertainment’s Edward H. Hamm Jr., Raymond Mansfield and Sean McKittrick, in association with Suitable Pictures, Poor Man’s Productions and Eternal Sunshine Productions. Alan McAlex (Suitable Boy) serves as producer for Suitable Pictures. Also from Delhi Crime are Director of Photography Johan Aidt, composer Andrew Lockington and editor Beverley Mills.
