Jai Hemant Shroff, lovingly known as Tiger Shroff, is all out for a cause to save tigers and has written a letter to Anil Dave, Minister of State, Environment, Forest and Climate Change, urging him to join hands with PETA India to ensure that the government's focus is on protecting tigers in their natural habitat.

On the occasion of International Tiger Day (July 29, 2016), the Baaghi actor says that he's been associated with the cause of tigers since two years. "I have been associated with the cause since my Heropanti days. I'm trying to make a difference by spreading awareness."
