Alia Bhatt’s Poacher: A web-series that tells the true story of India’s ivory poaching ring

Alia Bhatt, who is an actor and a producer, said she was moved by the web-series Poacher, which reveals the true story of the largest ivory poaching ring in India. Bhatt is an executive producer on the Prime Video series, which is directed by Richie Mehta, the maker of the acclaimed Netflix show Delhi Crime. The series, which has eight episodes, is a crime drama based on real events. It features Nimisha Sajaya, Roshan Mathew and Debyendu Bhattacharya in key roles. It will stream on Prime Video from February 23.

Bhatt said she was impressed by the authenticity and the emotion of the series, which she felt was important for the audience to see. She thanked Mehta for creating the series, which she said had a lot of heart. She said she met Mehta in 2020 and they talked about various topics, from parenting to cinema, art and Poacher. Mehta showed her two episodes of the series and she was hooked. At the trailer launch of Poacher, Alia Bhatt dazzled in a stylish ombre suit that costs ₹3.15 lakh, setting new standards for power dressing.

Mehta said he got the idea for the series when he was working on a documentary project with Google, called “India in a day” in 2015. He asked people to send videos from across the country for the project and one of them was about an ivory raid in Delhi by the WildLife Trust of India.

He said he was shocked to see the video, which showed officers breaking down a door and finding ivory in a flat. He contacted the Wildlife Trust and they told him that they had done the biggest ivory raid in India’s history on the day of his shoot. Mehta said he could not use the video in the documentary, but he vowed to make a project on it. He started researching and learned about wildlife crime fighters, who he said he was fascinated by. The result of that was this series, he said, adding that the series was a fictionalised dramatisation of true events.

Mathew, who plays a computer programmer in the series, said he was excited to work with Mehta, whom he admired as a filmmaker. He said he agreed to audition for the series without any hesitation, as it ticked all the boxes for him. He said he was lucky to get the part and he found the script very exciting, as it was based on true events and did not follow any conventional formula. He said his character was very different from his real self. He also praised Sajaya, with whom he had worked on Oru Thekkan Thallu Case and Chera.

Mathew said he was honoured to work with Bhatt again, after their 2022 film, “Darlings”, which was also Bhatt’s first production. He said he respected Bhatt as an actor and was amazed by her passion for cinema.

He said the last time they were on a big stage together, it was for a project (‘Darlings’) that launched Bhatt’s production house, Eternal Sunshine Productions. He said it was a song launch and Bhatt was his co-star. He said it was one of the most memorable and biggest projects in his career and he was very fortunate to be part of it.
