Thrissur: Wildlife photographer Sasikumar Parakkuth and video journalist P.P. Salim are gearing up to release an international documentary on tigers, including the visuals of big cats the duo shot from all major tiger reserves and national parks in India, such as Ranthambore in Rajastan, Penna and Kanha in Madhya Pradesh and Tadoba Andhari tiger reserve in Maharashtra among others.
Sasikumar's pictures, captured from wildlife sanctuaries across Africa and Europe, will be part of the documentary.

The duo has rushes of nearly 18 hours for their project which will be edited down to one hour. Sasikumar is a Dubai based businessman and his passion for wildlife photography has made him cover several wildlife sanctuaries across the world.

The documentary will show various moments in the big cat's life, including its taking rest and preying on smaller animals.

Salim's first documentary was Kazhchappadam, which depicted the hardships of video journalist to take visuals of risky incidents like lathi charge and political violence.

The documentary had won many awards such as Ala International Film Festival Award and Montage Film Festival Award. His second documentary Koochuvilangu on torturing captive elephants had won Heritage Animal Task Force Award.
