‘Siruthai’ Karthi adopts Namratha for Diya

A campaign by Suriya to save tigers is having an impact on his younger brother Karthi, so to say. On Monday, the actor adopted a white tiger cub at the Aringar Anna Zoological Park at Vandalur on the outskirts of Chennai.

The actor visited the zoo along with his niece Diya, daughter of Suriya, and expressed his willingness to adopt the tiger cub, which is a star attraction of the zoological park thousands by thousands every day.

He handed over a cheque for Rs 77,000 to the Member Secretary of the Tamil Nadu Zoo Authority R Sundaravelu towards the food and maintenance of Namratha, the white tiger cub which he adopted.

The actor, who is currently playing the lead role in a film titled 'Siruthai', said, "Protecting a tiger is like protecting the forest itself. I am a wildlife enthusiast right from my childhood and I am happy to have the opportunity to sponsor a tiger".
