A tiger approaches the deputy rangers’ motorcycle.

“One can never predict when and how tigers will react. It’s the Forest Department licensed vehicle, with their guides and drivers who are trained to know their boundaries and legalities (sic).” According to Ms Tandon, she and fellow passengers sat quiet and watched the tigress move on.

“We were on the tourism path, which mostly these tigers cross. And Katy the tigress in this video as well, is habituated to coming close to vehicles and snarling,” she said.

She added that tigers were “quiet spectators” and that they were “kings of where they roam.”

The actor, 48, continued, “Any unexpected movements can startle them as well.
