About Machli – The World’s Most Famous Tiger:

Machli was the world’s most photographed tiger. Catch her enthralling story on the big screen and get your kids along. Machli lived to an extraordinary age of 20 – the longest a tiger has lived in the wild.

In this long and fruitful life, Machli defeated her mother to become queen of the fort and lake territory of Ranthambore, battled a 14-feet crocodile and even fought a huge male tiger to protect her cubs.

Machli played a key role in the regeneration of the tiger population in Ranthambore and Sariska National Parks. This film tells the incredible stories behind Machli’s rise to power and legacy, from her prime to her death.
