Director Nikhil Advani is leaving no stone unturned to promote his film upcoming Delhi Safari. After heading a campaign to write to the prime minister to protect the habitat of the wild animals, Nikhil now plans to have the premiere of his 3D animated film at Ranthambore in Rajasthan.
Environmentalist Bittu Sahgal, who is supporting Delhi Safari, says, “I have spoken to officials at Ranthambore. They have requested a screening of the film for a 5,000-strong crowd.”
Ranthambore is one of the largest national parks in the country and was declared one of the Tiger Reserves in 1973.
Members of the cast and crew of the film including Govinda, Shankar Mahadevan and Loy Mendonsa have kick started a campaign to save the environment by signing postcards that will be handed over to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Said Advani, “We will ask students to send letters in support of the cause, which will then be sent to the Prime Minister’s Office. We will use the web and social media to reach out to as many people as possible, so that the petition reaches the PMO by the first week of October which is observed as Wildlife Week.”
Quizzed about the release of his film clashing with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, the director said, “I know SOTY is a big film but they can come and support our film too.”
