Fans took to social media to praise Alia’s down-to-earth demeanor, flooding platforms with messages of admiration for the Gully Boy actor.

In her role as executive producer, Alia expressed her pride in contributing to Poacher, emphasizing the show’s powerful narrative on animal poaching and illegal wildlife trade. She lauded Richie Mehta’s storytelling and highlighted the urgency of wildlife preservation.

Poacher, featuring a stellar cast including Nimisha Sajayan, Roshan Mathew, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Kani Kusruti, Ranjitha Menon, and Maala Parvathi, is set to stream on Amazon Prime Video from February 23.
