Chopra Jonas, who said she’s always had a love for tigers, was honoured to have lent her voice to the doccie.

“It’s just wonderful to be able to be a part of something so special and to tell the story of this magnificent animal that comes from my country, I was very honoured.

She added: “I have always loved tigers and I feel a kinship with the female tiger. I feel very protective of my family. Ambar’s journey is something I think every mom would really relate to.”

Further on Instagram, the former beauty queen wrote about how the story captures the wild and brings out tales of love, conflict, hunger and survival among other themes.

“In the bustling jungles of India, where creatures big and small, timid and majestic roam, there’s Ambar - a tiger with a timeless legacy.

“She cares for her cubs with so much ferocity that the beautiful bond between mother and child shines through so magnificently. This film was shot over 8 years following this amazing family.

“I had so much fun lending my voice to this incredible story and exploring the jungles through this film. I can’t wait for y’all to enjoy the jungle with us,” she wrote.

Directed by Mark Linfield, “Tiger” will show how Ambar’s cubs, curious, rambunctious and at times a bit clumsy, learn from their savvy mother who will do all that she can to keep them safe from pythons, bears and marauding male tigers.

On Earth Day, Disney+ will also be adding, “Tigers on the Rise”, a companion film to “Tiger”.

Narrated by American actor, Blair Underwood, the film celebrates the remarkable comeback of one of the world’s most iconic animals.

Directed by Rob Sullivan, “Tigers on the Rise” follows the successful rebound of tigers and how they are venturing from India’s forest reserves into farms and villages - which is a monumental challenge for both people and animals.

“The heroes in this story are the vets, scientists and community patrols dedicated to ensuring that tigers and people can coexist,” read the statement.
