Actor Alia Bhatt has come on board as the executive producer for the crime series ‘Poacher’.
Excited to be associated with the project, Alia in a statement said, “Being part of this incredibly significant project is an honor, for both me and the entire team at Eternal Sunshine Productions.

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.”
