Panaji, Nov 27 (PTI) Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham has joined hands with three-time Green Oscar winning filmmaker Mike Pandey to produce a feature length documentary about the plight of tigers in the country.

The Bollywood actor will be financing 30 per cent of the production cost and the filmmakers are looking for investments from other sources also. "The documentary is budgeted at Rs 8 crore," Pandey, here for the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), said today.
